JUVENTUS have joined Manchester United and Real Madrid in tracking Basel loan star Dimitri Oberlin.
The Switzerland Under-21 striker has turned heads with three goals and an assist in his four Champions League games this season.
The Red Bull Salzburg starlet has thrived in temporary spells with their fellow Austrians SC Rheindorf Altach and now Swiss side Basel.
Cameroon-born Oberlin, 20, has hit six goals in all during his 15 games for Basel.
And calciomercato.com say Serie A champions Juve have jumped into the queue of his admirers.
United, though, are thought to have been snubbed by Oberlin when he was just 17.
He claimed he did not want to battle in the ranks alongside so many other talented youngsters at Old Trafford.
So instead he left FC Zurich for Salzburg.
Oberlin said at the time: “The transfer almost happened.
“In the end I decided otherwise. My parents had allowed me to transfer, but I did not.
“I would have started at the Under-18s, the way into the first team would have been far.
“The competition would have been massive.”
Juventus are also favourites to sign Liverpool’s Germany midfielder Emre Can, although Manchester City are now thought to be in the running too.
Real, meanwhile, have been beset by talk of their players prioritising next summer’s World Cup finals in preference to reviving the wobbling European champions.
Zinedine Zidane’s men lie 11 points behind La Liga leaders Barcelona.
Main man Cristiano Ronaldo even responded to Real’s 3-1 Champions League loss away to Tottenham last week by insisting he did not want to renew his Bernabeu contract.
So Zidane will be hoping for a massive lift when fit-again Gareth Bale is sharp enough to return following five weeks out with a calf injury.
