Report: Juventus to target Aston Villa's Ron Vlaar as alternative to Benfica captain Luisao
Juventus could be set to target Aston Villa’s Ron Vlaar as an alternative to Benfica captain Luisao, according to reports.
The Daily Mail claims that the Bianconeri may challenge Southampton, Roma and Lazio for the Dutch international’s signature.
Sporting Director Giuseppe Marotta had initially targeted Olympiakos’s Kostas Manolas and Luisao to strength his defence, but both deals have become complicated.
The latter, in particular, was believed to be close, but despite suggestions Luisao is eager to make the switch, Benfica have sternly blocked the 33 year-old’s exit.
