Juventus are prepared to steal Romelu Lukaku away from Chelsea in the summer after the striker's future has become uncertain, according to the Sunday People.
The 20-year-old Belgium international, on loan at Everton, is a target for the Serie A side when Jose Mourinho questioned why Lukaku had chosen to go to the Merseyside club.
This has given the Old Lady hope to secure Lukaku permanently if his relationship breaks down with his parent club, who he signed for in August 2011 from Anderlecht.
Chelsea have suffered without Lukaku in their squad, with their strikers only scoring four league goals this season.
The Italian giants have monitored Lukaku since his move to Goodison Park and are likely to enquire about the striker at the end of the season.
It was reported Lukaku handed in a transfer request hours after Chelsea's loss to Bayern Munich in the European Super Cup, where he missed the all-important penalty in the shootout.
Everton are also interested in keeping the striker on loan for another season after his impressive start to the season.
Lukaku has eight goals in 11 Premier League appearances and has linked up well with his new teammates since joining on deadline day.
