Juventus are ahead of Real Madrid in the race for Bayern Munich contract rebel David Alaba.
Tuttosport says Alaba’s versatility is hugely appealing to Juventus boss Andrea Pirlo.
Alaba is usually deployed as a centre-back but he has vast experience of playing at left-back and can also be deployed in midfield.

In addition, Alaba’s experience means he most likely wouldn’t find it too difficult to adapt to Pirlo’s methods if he did join Juventus.
If Juventus do pursue a move for Alaba they are set to face a considerable amount of competition, with Real and Liverpool also considering signing him to ease their defensive concerns with Virgil van Dijk out injured.
