De Ligt, 21, joined Juventus in 2019 following a stunning campaign with Ajax.

Since arriving in Turin, the former Ajax skipper has featured in 69 matches, in all competitions.

Although the young centre-back has a deal that runs until 2024, there are recent claims that he could be eyeing a move to La Liga giants Barcelona.

It has been reported by El Chiringuito that de Ligt is a big admirer of two senior Barcelona figures – the newly elected Laporta as well as manager Koeman.

It is not yet known how Juventus feel about a proposed transfer, however, one thing is for sure, still at the tender age of just 21, should de Ligt move, the Old Lady will command a whopping fee – a figure Barcelona may not be able to stump up, given their current financial crisis.

Since joining Juventus three years ago, de Ligt has lifted two major trophies, including the 2019-20 Serie A title.
