JUVENTUS could launch a move for Liverpool forward Divock Origi, according to reports.
The Italian giants are apparently planning for a future without Mario Mandzukic, who was the subject of Premier League interest this summer.
Should he complete a move away from Turin in the future, Calciomercato claim Origi would be their first choice replacement for the Croatian hitman.
Origi, 21, joined the Reds in 2014, arriving in a £10m deal from French outfit Lille.
He enjoyed a breakthrough season on Merseyside last term, scoring five goals in his 16 top flight appearances.
There are currently three years left to run on his existing deal at Anfield.
But if Juve are knocked back in their approach for the Belgium international, the 32-time Serie A champions reportedly have two other strikers from England’s top flight lined up as alternative targets.
Origi’s Liverpool teammate Daniel Sturridge and Olivier Giroud of Arsenal are also said to be on their transfer radar.
