RAI Sport says Juve chief Fabio Paratici is meeting with new coach Maurizio Sarri today to discuss their transfer plans.
And featuring heavily in the talks will be Gabriel.
While Juve are in negotiations with Inter Milan striker Mauro Icardi, Sarri actually regards Gabriel as the better option. The coach believes the City forward would be a better foil for Cristiano Ronaldo.
Gabriel is said to be unsettled at City, where he is strictly second choice to Sergio Aguero.
