Juventus linked with a move for Filipe Luis

Juventus appear to have a genuine interest in signing Atletico Madrid left-back this summer.

According to a report from Calciomercato, Juventus are linked with a move for Atletico Madrid left-back Filipe Luis.

The Brazil international joined Atletico Madrid from Chelsea for a fee in the region of 16 million euros in July 2015. His contract expires in the summer of 2019.

Luis has scored ten goals and provided 27 assists in 298 games for Atletico Madrid, including one goal and three assists in 25 games in all competitions this season.

The 32-year-old is considered to be one of the best left-backs in Brazil.

Juventus shortlist Filipe Luis as transfer target. The Italian champions will be desperate to make an impact in the summer transfer window.

According to Calciomercato (via La Gazzetta dello Sport), “According to the latest reports from La Gazzetta dello Sport, Juventus have identified Atlético Madrid left-back Filipe Luís as an ideal replacement for Alex Sandro, should he be granted his wish to leave Turin during this summer’s transfer window. Indeed, Bianconeri directors Beppe Marotta and Fabio Paratici met with Portuguese super-agent Jorge Mendes in Madrid earlier this week to discuss a potential move for the 32-year-old Santa Catarina native.”

Atletico Madrid are not in a position where they need to sell and would like to keep hold of the left-back, but right offer may force the club to consider a deal.

Whether he will join Juventus or not remains to be seen.
