According to Italian newspaper Tuttosport, Juventus were at Southampton on Sunday to scout Everton’s Romelu Lukaku.

The Belgian was in fine form for the Blues last season, scoring 25 goals in all competitions.

He has started this season relatively well, with seven goals in the Premier League to his name so far.

Doubts about his future have continued to circle, with rumours that he is planning a big-money move in the summer transfer window.

Juventus are a club that have been linked with his signature in the past and Tuttosport reports that they are indeed keen on his signature.

According to the newspaper, they were at Southampton on Sunday to scout the Belgian as the Blues took on the Saints.

They report that the Serie A giants have fallen in love with Lukaku and have already begun to plan for a big money move next summer given how complicated it will be to get the deal over the line.

It now remains to be seen what happens, with these type of stories likely to keep coming on a regular basis for the remainder of the campaign.
