Juventus decide on Luis Muriel

Juventus have decided on Luis Muriel as their deputy for Dusan Vlahovic but will have to negotiate with Atalanta on the price. The Bianconeri have been searching for a capable deputy for the Serbian striker this summer and were initially expected to make a move for Alvaro Morata.

The Spaniard spent last season on loan at Juve but returned to Atletico Madrid this summer. The Spanish club initially wanted €35m for the striker and while Juve coach Max Allegri would prefer to bring him back to Turin, negotiations have so far failed.

TuttoSport report that attention has turned to Atalanta striker Muriel who fits the profile that Juve are looking for. The Colombian has just one year left on his contract with La Dea and Juve believe he could be the right option to come off the bench next season.

Atalanta are asking for €15m which Juve see as a starting point for negotiations which are expected to progress this week.

The Old Lady have also been linked with Barcelona forward Memphis Depay who is expected to leave the Blaugrana this summer.
