Napoli striker Gonzalo Higuain is keen to join Juventus this summer, according to Sky in Italy.

Juventus are interested in bringing the Argentina international to the club ahead of the new Serie A season, but are yet to open formal talks with Napoli.

Higuain has a 94m euros release clause in his contract, a figure Juventus are willing to meet by offering cash as well as players.

If Napoli reject the players offered, they would allow the Italian champions to pay the release clause over a two-year period.

Sky in Italy understand the players Napoli would consider are Simone Zaza, Roberto Pereyra, Stefano Sturaro and Daniel Rugani.

Napoli are also aware of interest in Higuain from Arsenal, but there has been no contact from the Gunners over a deal for the 28-year-old.
