Cape Town - Juventus are reportedly planning a swoop for Belgium international striker Romelu Lukaku, according to media reports in Italy.

According to Italian newspaper Corriere Dello Sport, the Everton forward, who netted 25 goals in all competitions for the Toffees last season, has piqued the interest of the Serie A giants.

Lukaku has been subject of wide-spread media speculation, with the 23-year-old being heavily linked with a move to Manchester United and Chelsea in the off-season.

The player cast further doubt over the availability of his services for the Goodison Park-based outfit ahead of the new season, when he revealed his desire to play Champions League football next season in an interview with Sky Sports back in March.

"That is the next step for me. I'm 23 next summer and I think it would be nice to play in the Champions League from next season."

The report suggests that Lukaku is part of a 'secret plan' that will also see Dani Alves, Domenico Berardi and Miralem Pjanic join the Old Lady.

Italy face Belgium in their 2016 European Championship opening fixture at the Parc Olympique Lyonnais on Monday, 13 June.
