Barcelona defender Samuel Umtiti on Juventus radar

Barcelona defender Samuel Umtiti is on Juventus' radar.

RAI Sport says Juve sporting director Fabio Parati is studying the French defender as a viable transfer option.

Umtiti renewed before the Russia World Cup until 2023, but his status at Barca has changed notably.

After suffering a bad knee injury he has lost his starting slot.

Clement Lenglet has been very solid beside Gerard Pique and Umtiti is part of the reserve team now.
