Juventus turn to Benoît Badiashile


Juventus could turn their attention to Monaco centre-back Benoît Badiashile when Giorgio Chiellini leaves the club. The Bianconeri turns 38 this year and still has a year left on his current Juve deal.

Corriere dello Sport report that Chiellini is likely to leave the club this summer and Juve are actively looking for a replacement. There have been ongoing talks with Chelsea CB Antonio Rudiger, however his salary demands have been judged too high by club management.

Corriere suggest that Juve are now looking to 21-year-old Badiashile and have already sent scouts to watch him in his last two games. There has also been a meeting between Juve manager Federico Cherubini and the players agent in recent weeks.

Despite the interest, Corriere report that Monaco would want a figure close to €30m to part with their promising young defender.
