La Stampa – an Italian daily newspaper published in Turin – have stated that Juventus will sign a defender in January and that Kaya is at the top of the list.
According to the article the current Serie A champions have a crisis in defence due to Barzagli’s long term injury and Cacares’s frequent injury issues.
Massimiliano Allegri has instructed the board to sign a defender in January with Kaya being the first option.
Juventus have also expressed an interest in Nastasic, Chiriches and Dragovic if they are unable to agree upon a fee with Galatasaray for their 23-year-old centre back.
The Turkish international defender still has four-years left on his contract and makes €1.5 million per-season.
Galatasaray are managed by former Italian national team coach Cesare Prandelli. The Lions are currently first in the Süper Lig with 19 points.
