Atalanta forward Rasmus Højlund has caught the attention of several big clubs throughout Europe thanks to his breakout performances this season.

Although he’s started only 12 league matches, the 20 year-old Danish international has collected 6 goals and 2 assists so far in Serie A. His exploits have drawn interest from Arsenal and Borussia Dortmund, but it’s Juventus who have already taken steps to possibly acquire the youngster.

According to Sportmediaset, a meeting took place in recent hours between the Bianconeri and the attacker’s representatives. The meeting was reportedly an early, exploratory discussion to understand the feasibility of a potential transfer.

Sitting twelve points outside a Champions League place, Juve could be forced to offload a big name or two this summer, including Dusan Vlahović, should they miss out on the competition.
