Juventus 'eye summer swoop for Filipe Luis'

  • 3 month ago

Juventus are reportedly interested in moving for Atletico Madrid defender Filipe Luis at the end of the season.

Luis joined Atletico from Deportivo La Coruna in the summer of 2010, and spent four years with the Madrid club before making the move to Chelsea ahead of the 2014-15 campaign.

The Brazilian only lasted one season at Stamford Bridge, however, before sealing a return to Atletico.

The 32-year-old is still an important figure at the Spanish club, but a number of injury problems have seen Lucas Hernandez given the opportunity to impress in the left-back position this season.

According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Juventus have already held a meeting with the defender's representatives as they consider a move for a player who will be out of contract at the end of the 2018-19 campaign.

Luis has recently returned to the training field following a leg fracture.
