JUVENTUS are in pole position to sign AC Milan star Hakan Calhanoglu, according to reports.
The 27-year-old is out of contract at the end of this season and negotiations with his current club are believed to have stalled.
According to Sky Sport in Italy, Calhanoglu may remain at Milan beyond this summer as the two parties are still discussing a new deal.
Journalist Manuele Baiocchini is suggesting the player is wanting €1million, or £850,000, more a year than the Rossoneri are currently offering.
Should talks end without a signature, Juventus are believed to be in pole position to sign Calhanoglu.
The Turkey international has previously been a target for Manchester United, with reports suggesting he was close to signing a pre-contract agreement in November.
That speculation was quashed in December when reports suggested he would sign a new deal at the San Siro.
But the news coming out of Italy today will no doubt raise further questions about Calhanoglu's future.

The midfielder has been one of Milan's best players since he joined the club from Bayer Leverkusen in July 2017.
He became the first Turkey international to score against England at the 11th attempt during a friendly in May 2016.
Although Calhanoglu may be leaving Milan, Zlatan Ibrahimovic looks set to sign a new one-year deal at the San Siro.
Baiocchini believes the extension will be announced within the next ten days, which means he could feature in next season's Champions League as a 40-year-old should Milan qualify.
