Juventus ‘are considering a move for former Italy striker Graziano Pelle’ this month
The 35-year-old is currently playing for Shandong Luneng in the Chinese Super League
According to Goal, they will try and boost their goal tally by signing the 35-year-old former Italy international Pelle from Chinese Super League club Shandong Luneng.
Pelle has reportedly been offered to both Milan clubs while West Ham also retain an interest as the exodus of talent from the Chinese top division continues ahead of imminent salary restrictions.
The striker is seen as a low-cost option and is believed to be keen on holding talks with Juventus chief football officer Fabio Paratici to seal a move to Turin this month.
Pelle scored 30 goals in 81 appearances for Southampton between 2014 and 2016 before moving out to China. He has also played for Lecce, AZ Alkmaar, Parma and Feyenoord.

He scored nine goals in 20 appearances for Italy and made Antonio Conte’s squad for Euro 2016, where he scored against Belgium and Spain before missing in a penalty shoot-out against Germany in the quarter-finals.
The Chinese Super League is set for an exodus of its best-known players after the country’s football association approved a salary cap last month.
Salaries for domestic players will be limited to £572,000 a year, while foreign players can now earn a maximum of £2.7million a year.
It means Pelle, who currently earns £13.7m in China, would have to take a pay cut of 80 per cent or £11m.
The former Chelsea player Oscar, who earns £18.87m a year at Shanghai SIPG, would lose over 85 per cent of his earnings.
