Juventus have begun the search for a new striker as Carlos Tevez is set to leave Turin this summer, say reports.

The ex-Manchester City man has just one year left on his contract and has drawn interest from a host of clubs including Boca Juniors, Atletico Madrid and PSG.

Replacements key

On a list of potential replacements, Juventus’ top targets are thought to be Edinson Cavani and Gonzalo Higuain who enjoyed good seasons for PSG and Napoli respectively.

They expect to face stiff competition for these two though and have also added Atletico Madrid striker Mario Mandzukic to their wish-list. 

Tevez fallout

Atletico are keen to move Mandzukic on this summer and the Old Lady believe that they could land the hitman for around €15 million, despite him netting 20 times in 43 outings last campaign.

With the Spanish side also interested in a move for Tevez, a swap deal might not be out of the question but it is likely Juventus would want cash as well as the Croatian in return.

What happens next?

A stumbling block could be personal preference, with Tevez wanting to end his career at Boca Juniors, the club where he started his playing career. If a deal can be done, the 31-year-old might draw the curtain on his nine year stay in Europe and head back to South America.

The striker scored 29 goals this season for the Italian champions and will leave a large gap in the side. The club though are looking to lower their average age next season and will be hoping new signing 21-year-old Paulo Dybala, last year's purchase Alvaro Morata and one more new addition will hit the ground running and help Juventus retain their Serie A title next year.
