Higuain, 24, has regularly been linked with a move away from the Bernabeu, despite his current contract running until 2016, and Paris St Germain have now confirmed that they will seek to sign the striker in the summer.

However, Juventus are also believed to be long-term suitors and Jorge Higuain, the striker's father and agent, has suggested a move to Turin is a possibility.

"It's an honour to be attracting the interest of Juventus," he told Tuttosport. "For now, Higuain is only thinking about Madrid, but in May we can discuss it."

Juve are also reported to be interested in 17-year-old River Plate striker Lucas Ocampos, whose contract expires in 2013.

Agent Pablo Martin Sabbag told Calcio Mercato: "I can confirm that many European clubs are interested in him."

Asked about Juventus, he added: "I don't like to name names, but I can say that three clubs in Italy are tracking him."
