Juventus have reportedly held talks with Romelu Lukaku and are able to fund a move for the Chelsea striker in this transfer window.
As reported by Corriere dello SportJuventus are interested in a deal for Lukaku, who has been frozen out by Chelsea and not given a squad number.
There remains a gap between Chelsea’s valuation of Lukaku and what Juventus are currently willing to pay, but that could soon be closed.
Inter Milan were interested in signing Lukaku on a permanent basis after his loan spell last season, but saw a £26million offer rejected by Chelsea, who want £40million for the striker.
Last week, during a training match, Juventus fans stormed the pitch and chanted ‘We don’t want Lukaku’.

However, according to Mercato Web TutorialVlahovic is hesitant to join Chelsea.
Therefore, if Juventus are to continue their pursuit of Lukaku, that will likely be a separate decision.
