Juventus reportedly decide that they will prioritise the signing of Ajax defender Matthijs de Ligt during the summer.

Juventus are reportedly hoping to win the race for Ajax defender Matthijs de Ligt during the summer.

A bidding war is expected to take place for the Netherlands international, with Manchester City and Barcelona having previously been linked with the 19-year-old.

However, according to Tuttosport, Juventus are ready to prioritise the signing of the centre-back as they search for a long-term replacement for Giorgio Chiellini.

Defending champions Juventus continue to dominate in Serie A, but it appears that Massimiliano Allegri wants to further strengthen his team in a bid to improve their chances in the Champions League.

De Ligt - who could cost in the region of £60m - has two-and-a-half years remaining on his contract, leaving Ajax in a position where they may be willing to sell in the summer.

The youngster has already made 76 appearances in the first team at the Dutch giants.
