Serie A champions Juventus are still keen on signing Manchester City defender Aleksandar Kolarov this summer, according to reports in Tutto Sport.

The highly rated Serbia international has been at Eastlands for the past three seasons now, having originally been brought to the north west from Italian outfit Lazio in July 2010 for a fee of £16 million by previous City head coach Roberto Mancini.

And throughout his three years at the mega-rich Premier League club, the 27-year-old has been forced to fight with France international Gael Clichy for the left-back role in the team, although on some occasions Mancini did opt to use both left-sided full backs in his startling line-up, with Kolarov the one pushed further forward into a more attacking role in midfield.

However, Kolarov has only featured in 56 Premier League contests though for City in the past three years, scoring four goals in the process, and with Clichy still likely to be favoured for the left-back position under new City boss Manuel Pellegrini at Eastlands next season, the full back is said to be weighing up his career options.

Consequently, Juve now want to take advantage of the uncertainty surrounding the Serbian’s future at City by shortly making a move for Kolarov.
