Juventus in Mendes talks for Benfica defender Ruben Dias

Juventus are ready to step up their interest in Benfica defender Ruben Dias.

Juve are turning to Dias after being left frustrated by Ajax's valuation for Matthijs de Ligt.

Ajax are demanding at least €70m for De Ligt - which is deemed over the top by Juve. As such, they're turning to Dias, who is represented by super agent Jorge Mendes.

Mendes is close to Juve sports chief Fabio Paratici and placed clients Cristiano Ronaldo and Joao Cancelo in Turin last summer.

Juve would expect to pay around €40m for Dias.
