Juventus to sign Manchester City forward?

Jesus wanted by Juventus

Serie A holders Juventus are reportedly planning an attempt to sign Gabriel Jesus from Manchester City when the transfer window reopens in the summer.

The Cityzens have recently been banned for two seasons from European competitions and this has led to suggestions that a number of players may head through the exit door.

According to Tuttosport, the Bianconeri are interested in landing the services of Jesus as they seek to pursue a young striker, who can lead the line for them ahead of Gonzalo Higuain.

The Brazil international is presently valued in the region of £58m and he has often played second fiddle to Sergio Aguero for the striker's position since joining the club from Palmeiras in the winter of 2017.

Jesus has scored 16 goals in all competitions this campaign despite starting only 60 percent of his games for the Premier League holders. He is likely to feature off the bench in the upcoming league clash against West Ham United.
