Juventus are the latest club to enter the race for PSV Eindhoven winger and Netherlands international Memphis Depay.
According to recent speculation from Italian publication Corriere dello Sport - brought to our attention by The Daily Star - the Serie A champions are looking to steal a match on Manchester United and Tottenham in the race for Depay's signature and are ready to submit a £12 million offer to entice the Eredivisie club into selling.
Still just 20-years-old, winger/forward Depay has already built quite an exciting reputation during he early stages of his career at Philips Stadion.
Impressive World Cup showing
With over 50 senior league appearances for PSV to his name, Depay was included in Louis van Gaal's final 23-man squad for the recent World Cup.
Despite not starting or indeed featuring in every game for the Oranje in Brazil, Depay still made a good impression during what was a successful tournament for the Dutch, notching goals against both Australia and Chile during the group stages.
Juventus are under new management for the 2014/15 campaign, with former AC Milan boss Massimiliano Allegri - sacked by the Rossoneri following a dismal run back in January - having been surprisingly handed the reigns in Turin following Antonio Conte's resignation last month.
Allegri is obviously keen to stamp his authority with the Old Lady and although he can already boast a formidably strong first-team squad who have won three consecutive Serie A titles, new recruits may well be in order with uncertainty surrounding the futures of players such as Arturo Vidal and Fernando Llorente.
Attack is certainly an area that seems to be getting attention from Allegri, with reports from the British press on Monday suggesting that Juventus were keen to challenge Liverpool and Real Madrid for the signing of Monaco frontman Radamel Falcao.

Manchester United/Tottenham decision
News of an imminent Juventus bid for Depay is likely to interest his other suitors, with Manchester United and Tottenham both having been credited with an interest in the 'new Cristiano Ronaldo' this summer.
Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino - who led his side to a last-gasp 1-0 victory over London rivals West Ham at Upton Park on Saturday - is evidently looking to add more firepower to his current team, with the likes of Roberto Soldado and Erik Lamela yet to prove their worth at White Hart Lane.
Van Gaal's position at Manchester United makes the Red Devils one of the favourites to land Depay, although it looks as if they will have to act with a significant degree of urgency given Juventus' plans to make their own interest official.
