Juventus are reportedly looking to secure a summer move for Brescia and Italy midfielder Sandro Tonali in an attempt to fend off interest from their rivals.
The 19-year-old has become one of Europe's hottest prospects this season, impressing in what's been an otherwise uninspiring Brescia side in his debut Serie A campaign.
