Juventus manager Maurizio Sarri preferred a 4-3-3 system at the start of the season, but has changed his side’s formation to 4-3-1-2 since mid-September, with Cristiano Ronaldo and Gonzalo Higuaín as the first-choice strikers.

Calciomercato claims only Aaron Ramsey has convinced this season when playing behind the strikers, while other options have failed so far.

Therefore, the Old Lady are looking at the market and Tottenham Hotspur’s Christian Eriksen leads the list.

His contract expires after this season and, as previously relayed by various reports, the Italian website once again reiterates the 27-year-old will not sign an extension.

Spurs are aware of Eriksen’s stance and are looking for a solution in January. It’s been claimed the north London club have asked for Adrien Rabiot as part of a deal for the Denmark international.

However, Juventus have ‘little room’ to make an approach for Eriksen in January as they are waiting for the ‘right moment’ to try and sign him on a free transfer next summer.

Juve have also identified other targets including Isco, Kai Havertz and Nicolò Zaniolo.

But given their skill at free transfers, it’s Eriksen who stands out.
