ITALIAN giants Juventus are reported to be tracking Ipswich Town’s highly-rated teenager, Connor Wickham.

In addition to a host of Premier League clubs keeping a close eye on Wickham, including Tottenham, Arsenal, Liverpool and Newcastle, it now appears that Serie A club Juventus are looking to get in on the act.

Juve are believed to have sent a crack spy team, including general manager Beppe Marotta and technical director Fabio Guild, on a scouting mission of England, and Wickham is one of those players who have figured prominently on their radar.

Wickham was this week named in the provisional England Under-21 squad for this summer’s European Championships in Denmark.
