Juventus want to sign Schalke left-back Sead Kolasinac within the next 24-48 hours according to Tuttosport.

Arsenal were heavily linked in Italy with the Bosnian international earlier in the transfer window but Juve look set to snap up the full back in this transfer window.

The 23-year-old’s contract expires in the summer, making him a much sought after target across Europe, but rather than just settling for a pre-contract agreement that would have allowed the player to join the club in July, Juve have offered €2 million plus bonuses in order to sign him this month.

Kolasinac is set to replace former Manchester United player Patrice Evra who is poised to return to the Premier League with Crystal Palace the most likely destination.

They may still be hope for Arsenal however if Juventus fail to land Kolasinac during this transfer window. The Serie A club are looking for an immediate replacement for Evra and will go ahead in recalling Leonardo Spinazzola from his loan spell with Atalanta instead if the Schalke defender can’t be signed, according to Tuttosport. This could also mean he would still be available on a free transfer if Juve lose interest.
