After initial rumours of interest earlier in the summer, Juventus are still eyeing Roma midfielder Bryan Cristante.

The Bianconeri are reportedly pursuing Cristante – whose contract at the capital club is set to expire in 2024 – at the request of Massimiliano Allegri.

The Juve boss, reports La Repubblica, is very fond of the Italian midfielder whom he coached at Milan and who gave him his debut at the age of 16 in a Champions League edition of Milan-Viktoria Plzen.

Roma have been reportedly engaged in talks over a contract renewal for the EURO champion, but for the moment no progress seems to have been made.
