Juventus are eyeing up a move for Manchester City left-back Aleksandar Kolarov having already agreed a deal with City to sign striker Carlos Tevez, Goal.com reports.

Tevez is having a medical today with the Italian Champions after a fee of £10 million was agreed with City yesterday and Juventus will take this opportunity to step up their interest in Kolarov.

The club are hoping to take advantage of City’s desire to sell Kolarov, with the Premier League runners-up looking to cut Kolarov’s £90,000 a week contract from their wage bill.

City signed Kolarov in 2010 for £16 million and they know that they are unlikely to re-coup anything like that from his sale but feel it is necessary in order to trim their wage bill.

Kolarov has struggled to hold a regular place in City’s first team this season, having only made 11 Premier League starts and the left-back has already indicated that he would leave the Etihad if another club offered him first-team football.

It looks as though Juve will try and tempt him with the first team football that he desires but one possible stumbling block is that the Italian Champions are unlikely to be able to offer Kolarov the wages he was on at City.
