Villarreal contact Juventus for Mattia De Sciglio

Villarreal have contacted Juventus to discuss a deal for Italy full-back Mattia De Sciglio, Gianluca Di Marzio reports.

The Spaniards will be without Alberto Moreno for six months after he underwent surgery for a torn ACL.

And they have identified De Sciglio, 27, as a fitting replacement for the former Liverpool left-back.

Talks are at an early stage with Villarreal requesting information from Juve to understand how feasible a deal is.

It is not yet clear whether Villarreal are pursuing a permanent or loan move for De Sciglio.

De Sciglio had an injury-hit 2019/20 season with the Old Lady, making only nine Serie A appearances.

The 39-cap Italian international was linked with a move to Barcelona in May.
