According to calciomercato.com Cagliari's Nicolo Barella's performances are being monitored.
Juventus and AC Milan are reportedly keeping a close eye on the 19 year old following an impressive season with Cagliari, which has seen him make 20 appearances during his debut campaign in Serie A.
Despite extending his contract with Cagliari until 2021 should concrete interest in him be shown by Juve or AC Milan in the summer it would be anticipated that Barella would leave, potentially for the J Stadium or San Siro.
The report also claimed director of sport Fabio Paratici has scouted Barella personally as he watched the midfielder in action for Italy at U19 level when the Azzurri faced Israel last year.
Juve's interest is said to be long-term with it claimed representatives from the Bianconeri - along with AC Milan scouts too - will be at Cagliari's game at Atalanta this afternoon as the scouting of Barella continues.
