Juventus will reportedly have a €60m transfer war chest in January and have identified Dortmund midfielder Ilkay Gundogan as a target.
Monaco star Joao Moutinho is also understood to be on their shortlist, as the Turin giants will have a significant amount of money available to continue to get their Scudetto charge back on track after a disappointing start to the campaign.
However, perhaps the key aspect if true, is the level of investment that will be allowed to Massimiliano Allegri, which in turn will allow the likes of Gundogan and Moutinho to become realistic targets for the Bianconeri, as reported by Football Italia.
The Portuguese international is seen as an alternative to Gundogan, but Juve are likely to face stiff competition for the German ace with both Arsenal and Liverpool previously linked with his signing.
Furthermore, with Jurgen Klopp now at Anfield, a reunion with his former boss could appeal to the 25-year-old as claimed by the Metro, as the pair certainly enjoyed plenty of success during their time together at the Bundesliga outfit.
Nevertheless, an opportunity to compete in the Champions League as well as helping the Old Lady to a fifth successive Serie A title will undoubtedly be an attractive proposition too, which in turn sets up an interesting battle next month.
