Juventus have been linked with a move for Tim Krul, according to The Mirror.

The Serie A side are believed to be tracking the 25-year-old, who is contracted at St James' Park until 2017.

However the Dutch 'keeper will cost the Italian giants £20million as Newcastle boss Alan Pardew is not keen to let go of his in-form stars.

The in-demand stopper is said to be a long-term replacement for Gianluigi Buffon who, at 35, could be nearing the end of his career.

Krul has 97 league appearances for Alan Pardew's since becoming a regular at St James' Park four years ago. And Recently he has been in top form, with a stand-out performance against Tottenham making a lot of teams sit up and take notice. 

That performance led to Pardew labelling him: the "best in the Premier League."

Spurs boss André Villas-Boas was also full of praise after Krul made the most saves in a Premier League game since the 2006-07 season.

He was on the substitutes' bench for Holland on Tuesday night as his goalkeeping rival Jasper Cillessen kept a clean sheet in their 0-0 draw with Colombia.

However, the 25-year-old is expected to take his place in Louis van Gaal's squad for next summer's World Cup and will hope his club performances boost his chances of becoming No. 1 for the Dutch side in Brazil next year.
