Valencia’s Cancelo to Juve?

Valencia full back Joao Cancelo has emerged as a prime transfer target for Italian champions Juventus, according to reports.

Various media outlets in Italy report the Bianconeri are giving up hope of striking a deal with Real Madrid for Danilo and have now shifted their focus to the Portugal international.

Dani Alves terminated his contract with the Italian champions earlier this summer and the 23-year-old, who has also been linked to Barcelona, is now Juve’s prime target.

The reports suggest the €25m-rated defender could well move to Turin this summer after the two clubs concluded negotiations for goalkeeper Norberto Neto over the weekend.

Signed from Benfica in 2015 for €15m, Cancelo has made 73 La Liga appearances for Los Che.
