Juventus are plotting a move to bring Thibaut Courtois to Turin next summer, according to reports in Belgium.

With just over a year left on his current contract, talks between Chelsea and the keepers’ agent have stalled, amid rumours of interest from abroad.

Both Real Madrid and PSG are reportedly keen to move for the 25-year-old Belgian.

Madrid are expected to cut ties with Keylor Navas at the end of the season, while PSG have been long admirers of the Chelsea shotstopper.

The Old Lady are the latest to join the race for Courtois, whose performances since joining the club in 2011 have been little short of flawless.

With Juve stalwart Gigi Buffon expected to retire at the end of the season, the Italian giants have their minds firmly set on a suitable replacement come the summer.

Former Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczęsny was signed in July as cover for the 39-year-old goalkeeper, with the intention of bedding him into the club before taking over the gloves next season.

Szczęsny has played just three matches so far this season and done little to decrease his stock. However the temptation of an available Courtois may be enough for Massimiliano Allegri to change his plans regarding his permanent man between the sticks. 

Talks of a possible exit have led the Chelsea board to look for a replacement with Stoke City’s Jack Butland at the top of the club’s list.
