Independiente defender Carlos Javier Matheu is attracting interest from Juventus.

Juve chiefs Alessio Secco and Jean-Claude Blanc are scouring the world market for potential defensive transfer targets and are weighing up a bid for 22 year-old right-back Matheu.

The Bianconeri are considering making a £1 million bid for Matheu when the Argentine season concludes in December.
