Newcastle manager Alan Pardew has put a £20million price tag on goalkeeper Tim Krul to fend off interest from Juventus, according to The Sun.
Krul has been in excellent form so far this campaign, producing a man of the match performance against Tottenham last time out where he broke a Premier League record by making 14 saves in one match.
And Italian giants are reportedly lining up a move for the Dutch international to replace legendary 'keeper Gianluigi Buffon, who is now 35.
However, the side from Turin will have to shell out a sizeable fee in order to secure Krul's services, who has recently declared he is happy at Newcastle.
The 25-year-old shot stopper, who has five caps for Holland, will be looking to keep up his run of form in order to secure a place on the plane to the World Cup in Brazil next summer, after Pardew recently stated that he believed Krul was the best Dutch goalkeeper.
It remains to be seen whether or not Juventus are willing to pay such an amount for Krul, but Newcastle fans will be hoping the fee is enough to put them off as the club's No 1 has become a fan favourite on Tyneside.
