Juve want Atleti’s Filipe Luis

Juventus are eyeing a summer move for Atletico Madrid defender Filipe Luis and have reportedly held a meeting with his representatives.

Marca cites a report in Italian outlet Gazzetta dello Sport that the Bianconeri want to strengthen their full-back options this summer and are interested in the 32-year-old.

The Brazilian defender – who is currently ruled out for the remainder of the season through injury – will see his contract with Los Rojiblancos expire in June 2019.

The Turin-based side constructed a similar deal for Dani Alves from Barcelona two summers ago while they regularly sign Brazilian full-backs, with Alex Sandro currently occupying the position.

Jorge Mendes is the agent of the former Chelsea defender and is said to have met with Juve officials during their trip to Madrid last week.
