With plenty of defensive options already at their disposal, however, they will likely need to sell before they push ahead with a move for De Ligt, while there is also the possibility of Neymar returning in the summer for what would be a significant sum.

TURIN, ITALY - APRIL 16: Matthijs de Ligt of Ajax celebrates after scoring his team's second goal during the UEFA Champions League Quarter Final second leg match between Juventus and Ajax at Allianz Stadium on April 16, 2019 in Turin, Italy.

De Ligt said earlier this month that he was asked about a move to Juventus by Cristiano Ronaldo at the end of the Nations League final after Portugal beat the Netherlands 1-0.

The report claims the deal will cost Juventus around £62million, although negotiations about personal terms are yet to finalised.

It had appeared that De Ligt, who has enjoyed an impressive breakthrough season that included helping Ajax to the Champions League semi-finals, was bound for Barcelona.

PSG have emerged as favourites for De Ligt after tabling an offer worth €220,000-a-week.

However, he has made a decision to move to Turin after Bayern dropped out of the race early.

He will become new Juventus head coach Maurizio Sarri's first signing after the Italian was appointed as Massimiliano Allegri's successor last week.

The Ajax captain himself rejected a potential move to Barcelona while Paris Saint-Germain failed to see through their interest.
