Tuttosport says Conte wants to strengthen the left-side of his defence this summer and is keen on Adriano.
Conte's ideal signing would be Real Madrid wing-back Marcelo, but knows there's little chance of the European champs parting with the Brazilian.
Instead, he's focusing on Adriano and believes Juve can land the 29 year-old well within his summer budget.
Barca are willing to sell the defender, who is regarded as cover for first-choice Jordi Alba, for €10 million.
