Scudetto winners to challenge Chelsea for Portugal international’s signature.
Juventus are eyeing Chelsea and Manchester United target William Carvalho, according to Portuguese source A Bola.
The 21-year-old midfielder has been called up to the Portugal squad for the crucial World Cup play-offs against Sweden after a fine start to the season with Sporting Lisbon.
Carvalho has been compared to former Arsenal star Patrick Vieira and is a wanted man despite a reported £37.8m buy-out clause.
Juventus now lead the race for Carvalho and are set to make a bid in January or next summer.
The Old Lady’s interest could force either David Moyes or Jose Mourinho to make a move.
