Juventus may reportedly make an approach for Tottenham Hotspur defender Toby Alderweireld if they fail to sign Matthijs de Ligt from Ajax.

Tottenham Hotspur defender Toby Alderweireld has reportedly emerged as a potential transfer target for Juventus.

The Italian giants are known to be in the market for a new centre-back, and Ajax's Matthijs de Ligt is at the top of the club's shortlist ahead of the summer window.

However, it appears likely that the Netherlands international will sign for Barcelona, leaving Juventus to find another option to strengthen their backline.

According to Calciomercato, the Serie A outfit are prepared to launch an approach for Alderweireld due to the player's £25m release clause.

Any interested club is able to open negotiations with the Belgian by making a bid of that size, providing that over two weeks still remain before the transfer deadline.

The 30-year-old has made a total of 43 appearances for Spurs in all competitions this season.
