The Turin side have now earmarked Cancelo as a possible replacement for Dani Alves and are reported to have included Lemina in the deal.

Corriere dello Sport reports that the Bianconeri are considering using Valencia’s interest in Lemina as part of the deal along with a sum of €17 million in cash.

Cancelo, who plays in a variety of roles down the right, has a €35 million asking price, and it remains to be seen if the two sides -who have done a lot of business together recently with Simone Zaza and Norberto Neto heading to Spain- will reach an agreement.
