Juventus have reportedly joined Manchester United and Chelsea in pursuit of Udinese defender Mehdi Benatia.
The Moroccan defender continues to impress with a number of assured displays in Serie A and appears to be attracting plenty of interest.
According to talkSPORT, both Sir Alex Ferguson and Andre Villas-Boas are keen on Benatia, but may struggle to bring him to Old Trafford or Stamford Bridge, respectively.
It has been claimed Juve have already been in touch with Udinese regarding the 24-year-old but the latter will not consider selling until the summer at least.
It is unclear if United or Chelsea have made formal approaches for the centre-beck, but reports in Italy suggest Benatia could leave the Stadio Friuli for around £15 million.
Meanwhile, both United and Chelsea have also been linked with Borussia Dortmund's Neven Subotic as both Ferguson and Villas-Boas scour the market for defensive reinforcements.
Subotic has reportedly been identified as a possible replacement for United's Rio Ferdinand, while Chelsea boss Villas-Boas has concerns over Alex.
