Juventus are gearing up to make a triple transfer raid on the Premier League, with Manchester United duo Nani and Javier Hernandez in their sights along with Manchester City striker Stevan Jovetic.
To complete their summer transfer business, the Turin-based club will also go after Paris Saint-Germain attacker Ezequiel Lavezzi, say Italian newspaper Tuttosport.
Manchester United are set to have a huge squad clear-out before the end of the transfer window, with new boss Louis van Gaal reportedly ready to get rid of no less than seven players.
The likes of Wilfried Zaha and Marouane Fellaini have reportedly been told that they have no future at Old Trafford and can leave. Also on that list is said to be Hernandez and Nani - and Juventus could be about to pounce having decided more expensive targets such as Angel di Maria and Edinson Cavani are unattainable.
Between them, they started just 13 Premier League games for Manchester United last season, and now Van Gaal has decided to move them on after seeing them close up in pre-season.
The Red Devils are reportedly holding out for £15 million for Hernandez, who has attracted interest from both Tottenham and Southampton. Nani has been linked with a switch to Juventus for some time despite the fact that he signed a five-year contract last season, and will cost somewhere in the region of £11 million.
Should either player join Juvenuts then they would join former Manchester United full-back Patrice Evra who made the move to Turin earlier this summer. It is not know what implications Juve's interest in Nani and Hernandez could have for the Red Devils' swoop for Arturo Vidal.
Over on the blue side of Manchester, Jovetic failed to fire in his first season with City and has been linked with a move away - however the former Fiorentina man has insisted that he wants to stay and fight for a starting spot. It has been suggested however that Manchester City could sell up if an offer of £20 million or more is made.
Rounding off Juventus' summer spree is Lavezzi who could leave the Parc des Prince before Deadline day. Liverpool have previously been linked with the Argentinian.
