Basle defender Schar welcomes Juventus interest

Basle defender Fabian Schar has welcomed interest from Juventus.

The young Swiss is a target for some of Europe's biggest clubs.

"It is certainly very gratifying to know that an important club like Juventus thought of me for their defence," Schär told calciomercato.it.

"Serie A is very important with some very strong teams. It's a very interesting tournament that any player would like to measure himself up against.

"Did I speak to Lichtsteiner about it? Yes, on rare occasions, but we did discuss Italian football with Stephan (Lichtsteiner)."
