Juventus interest in N'Golo Kante is only superficial at this point. Lots of clubs monitoring his situation, including PSG. Juventus first enquired on Kante during dialogue surrounding then-Juve defender Matthijs de Ligt. But Max Allegri preferred Jorginho, who wasn't keen.

Suitors aware that Graham Potter's arrival may change the Kante situation, although currently no contract extension is close. Potter has always been a big fan of Kante from afar and now keen to assess his form and role when fit.

Kante one of the highest earners at the club, which complicates matters. Midfield incomings in January will naturally influence the situation, too.

As an aside, Juventus also considered a loan with option to buy for Christian Pulisic over the summer. Pulisic keen to link up with Weston McKennie but in the end, after some internal talks, no offer was made.
