Juventus are reportedly at the head of the queue to sign Anthony Martial on loan from Manchester United before the end of the January transfer window.
The France international came off the bench to play a key part in Man United’s winning goal against West Ham United in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.
Red Devils interim head coach Ralf Rangnick has since praised the attacker for his role in the victory over the Hammers, but the 26-year-old is still expected to leave Old Trafford before the end of the month.
Sevilla have been strongly linked with Martial, but according to Tuttomercatoweb, Juventus have an ‘advantage’ in the race for his signature.
The report claims that the Old Lady are now ‘tightening up’ their efforts to sign the Frenchman, with the Italian giants signalling that they are prepared to cover his salary for the rest of the season.
Martial – also linked with Barcelona this month – has scored once in 11 appearances for the 20-time English champions during the 2021-22 campaign.
