WORLD CUP COUNTDOWN—11 DAYS
Juventus want Robert Lewandowski 'to replace Gonzalo Higuain' this summer, according to reports in Italy.
The Polish striker is likely to be in high demand this summer should he wish to end his stay with Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich.
And Juventus, who narrowly edged out Napoli to the Serie A title, want to add options to their frontline according to Corriere dello Sport and in the process replace 30-year-old Higuain.
Juventus signed Higuain two summers ago after triggering the £76million release clause in his Napoli contract.
But with the Old Lady eyeing Lewandowski, Alvaro Morata and Inter's Mauro Icardi, Higuain looks set to be the fall-guy.
Lewandowski scored 41 goals in 48 competitive games for Bayern last season and is expected to shine for Poland at the World Cup this summer.
The Pole is reported to have grown tired in Munich after four years as he looks to earn a move that gives him a chance of winning the trophy that has so far eluded him - the Champions League.
The Italians and Bayern have done business several times together in recent years, switching players on good terms such as wingers Douglas Costa and Kingsley Coman.
