Juventus are set to appoint Napoli forward Mario Mandzać as their new striker this summer.
The Italian giants are keen to sign the 20-year-old Croatian who can play as a wide forward or as a centre-forward.
Mandzać is a product of Juventus’ youth academy and spent last season on loan at Napoli, where he scored 16 goals in 33 appearances.
Juventus boss Maurizio Sarri has a history of bringing young players in and signing them on loan, and Mandzače is a good example of this.
He started his career at Genoa, scoring five goals in 44 Serie A games.
However, he struggled to get consistent first-team minutes and ended up at Geno Azzurri, where the club released him in 2016.
Mandić scored 13 goals in 31 Serie A appearances for the Rossoneri last season, but the Croatia international was loaned out to Napoli last season and he scored just four times in 32 games for the club.
The Napoli striker is likely to join Juventus on loan for the 2016/17 season, with the option to buy him permanently at the end of the season.
The striker is known to Napolitano, and they would like to keep him in Serie A, and he has already said that he will sign a new contract.
Juve are also interested in Borussia Dortmund defender Kevin Strootman, who is also keen on signing a new deal with the club after being released by Bayern Munich last season.
Strootman joined Bayern in 2015, and is a regular in the Bayern starting XI, making nine appearances for them in 2016/2017.
