Juventus are reportedly interested in signing Schalke star Leon Goretzka, the man who was a target for both Arsenal and Liverpool this summer.

Goretzka has just 10 months remaining on his contract with the Bundesliga side and therefore he is free to speak to any interested clubs in January about a free transfer next summer.

Juventus are also interested in Liverpool’s Emre Can, another player whose deal ends next summer, and they could find themselves getting two German stars for free if the duo decide to make a move to Turin.
