Juventus have enquired about signing Atletico Madrid winger Yannick Carrasco, according to Sky Sport Italia (via Football-Italia.net).

The Belgian was a target for Chelsea in the summer, but talk of a switch to Stamford Bridge has gone quiet in recent months, and it seems Juve are now leading the race for the midfielder.

Carrasco has only started eight La Liga games this season, and reports in Spain have suggested that the 24 year old would be allowed to leave this month.

Despite reportedly not having the best relationships with manager Diego Simeone, the winger is still featuring in the first team, and he has started the last two league matches.

Carrasco has however struggled for form since he picked up a knee injury in October. The Belgian international has scored just one goal since September, and that came in the Copa Del Rey earlier this month in the 3-0 win against Lleida Esportiu.

Calciomercato report it would take €50m (£44m) for Atletico to sell the winger before the end of the transfer window.
