Manchester United defender Victor Lindelof is on a list of potential candidates to replace Daniele Rugani at Juventus should he complete a move to Chelsea.

Rugani, 23, is expected to become Chelseas second major signing of the Maurizio Sarri era with Juventus reportedly set to accept a £44.6m offer from the Premier League side.

Sarri is a long-time admirer of the Italy international and has previously been thwarted in his attempts to sign the centre-half while in charge at Napoli.

Juventus are prepared to sanction his exit to a club outside of Italy however and are now considering options to take his place in Massimiliano Allegris squad.

Atletico Madrid stalwart Diego Godin has entered the final year of his contract at the Wanda Metropolitano and the Serie A champions are reportedly ready to test his sides resolve with a £22m offer.

Juventus are also willing to offer the 32-year-old a three-year contract. However, it remains to be seen if Godin, an integral figure under Diego Simeone, will consider leaving the Spanish capital.

Tuttosport report Godins teammate Stefan Savic is another option for Juventus, who could also pursue a move for Lindelof.

Signed just last summer for £30m, the former Benfica starlet failed to break into Jose Mourinhos first-team last season, starting just 13 Premier League matches.

Tuttosport claim Juventus initially held interest in signing the Sweden international while he was still at Benfica, interest that could be revisited in the coming weeks.

Ajax starlet Matthijs de Ligt is another defensive option considered by the Serie A champions. However, the Dutch club have insisted they want the 18-year-old to remain with them for at least one more season, inviting clubs to return with offers next summer.
