The Italian champions eye up a move for Kolarov.
After showing significant interest in Manchester City’s Carlos Tevez Juventus are now also aiming to bring the Argentinian’s teammate – Aleksander Kolarov – to Turin, reports the Daily Mail.
With Juve reportedly having first reserve on Tevez they’re clearly not happy with just one City steal and now want to bring Kolarov into their championship winning squad as well.
The Serbian has been at the Etihad Stadium for three years following a £20m transfer and knows Serie A well after spending three years previously in Italy with Lazio.
Last season the 27-year-old played 30 times for City in all competitions, netting four goals along the way and providing three assists.
Although generally considered to be a left-back, the attacking prowess of Kolarov makes him more of a utility player down the left flank and La Bianconeri manager Antonio Conte clearly feels this versatility can only help his team.
In traditional Italian style of present, Juve often opt for three at the back with wing-backs providing support and with an attacking streak the Serbia international could slot right into that system – something that he has done occasionally for City.
Since signing for the Citizens in the summer of 2010 as one of Roberto Mancini’s first transfers, Kolarov has competed with Gael Clichy for a regular place in the starting XI.
In general the Frenchman has triumphed in this respect and despite the Serb’s trademark free-kicks giving him an extra weapon in his armoury, Kolarov’s defensive capabilities have often been questioned.
In three years at Eastlands the left-back has started just 40 Premier League matches and new boss Manuel Pellegrini may not put too much resistance if the right offer from Juve comes in.
