Juventus are reportedly interested in Graziano Pellè. According to claims from the Italian media, the Southampton striker is an easy target this summer and the Old Lady have been monitoring his situation.

Tuttosport says the main reason why Pellè is wanted by Juve is because the Italian side are looking for a replacement in case Simone Zaza leaves the club. But they may end up making a move if the 24-year-old stays, since other strikers from the squad could be departing as well.

Pellè’s contract with Southampton expires in 2017, and as the player reportedly doesn’t want to renew it, the Saints won’t let him go for free. TuttoSport says he’s valued at €2.5m (£2m).

The newspaper also mentions a strong competition from Everton, who’d also battle for the player as he looks to leave this summer.

Pellè managed 14 goals and 7 assists in 36 games for Southampton last season.
