Juventus are reportedly eyeing a move for PSG defender Presnel Kimpembe in the summer transfer window.





According to Goal.com, Kimpembe could be on his way out from Paris this summer following his brother’s criticism on German manager Thomas Tuchel in the wake of the Champions League defeat against Borussia Dortmund.

Regardless, the French centre-back has apologized to Tuchel on behalf of his brother.

Kimpembe has so far made 14 appearances in Ligue 1 this season while playing in all of PSG’s Champions League fixtures except the one against Galatasaray.

The 24-year-old was infamous for his defensive error in the last year's Champions League knockout game against Manchester United, which eventually cost them a place in the quarter-finals.

Elsewhere at Turin, Bianconeri are looking for defensive reinforcements in the summer as new signings Merih Demiral and Matthijs de Ligt haven’t hit the ground running in Italy.

Maurizio Sarri’s side have also expressed their interest in signing Manchester United defender Chris Smalling, who is currently on loan at AS Roma.
