Juventus are lining up a summer move for Atalanta defender Federico Peluso, Goal.com understands.

Bianconeri coach Antonio Conte is eager to fine-tune all areas of his squad to mount a serious Champions League challenge next season.

Genoa-owned striker Mattia Destro is understood to be Juve's top priority, and the Serie A champions have now turned their attention to reinforcing their back line.

It is believed that Juve have put together a first offer of €4.5 million for Peluso, which falls short of Atalanta's valuation of player, as the Bergamo-based club are asking for €7m.

Juve are also keeping tabs on Atalanta striker Manolo Gabbiadini, though they have not yet made an offer for the Italy Under-21 international.
