Reports in Italy suggest the Serie A champions are keen to snap up the 26-year-old Dutch international.

Janmaat signed for Newcastle from Feyenoord for £5million in 2014, but the Magpies will expect him to move on following their relegation to the Championship and might be willing to accept in the region of £3m.

The right-back won the North East player of the Year award in 2015, beating off Middlesbrough’s George Friend and Grant Leadbitter for the top prize. It would be no surprise if Janmaat opted to swap the black and white of Newcastle for Juventus, who won this year’s Italian title, finishing nine points clear of second-placed Napoli.
