According to reports, Juventus are interested in signing AC Milan star forward Rafael Leao, who has starred under Stefano Pioli, even offering a possible swap deal.


A report from Calciomercato.it has stated that the Bianconeri are keen on bolstering their attacking options after struggling in the first half of the season, with Leao being named as a possible target.


Apart from Leao, Juventus have previously been linked with Arkadiusz Milik, Fernando Llorente and Olivier Giroud, seeing them all as backup options for Cristiano Ronaldo and Alvaro Morata.


The report states that the Juventus management admires the young Portuguese forward, who has been linked with Juventus in the past.


Leao is reportedly valued at around €30 million, and so Juventus are keen on taking off some of the value with a straight swap with Federico Bernardeschi, who is out of favour at Juve.


According to the report, this would be an equal exchange, with the two players have equal valuations.


However, Milan are confident that Leao is keen on staying at the club, being seen as the club's starting forward for the future, with him still only 21.


Leao has three goals and three assists in ten Serie A appearances this season. playing most of his games on the left wing.
