Juventus target BVB fullback Schmelzer as they lose confidence in Evra

Juventus management are losing confidence in Patrice Evra.

The former Manchester United fullback has struggled for form in Italy since his summer Bosman switch.

Tuttosport says Juve are now making plans to replace Evra, with directors losing confidence in the Frenchman being a long-term option at left-back.

Bianconeri GM Beppe Marotta is eyeing Borussia Dortmund wing-back Marcel Schmelzer, who could be up for sale in January.

Schmelzer has found himself on the outer at struggling BVB this season and could be on the move next month for €8-10 million.

Napoli and Inter Milan are also keeping tabs on the situation.
