JUVENTUS are ready to begin talks with English starlet Samuel Iling-Junior amid interest from Premier League clubs, according to reports.
Iling-Junior has burst on to the scene, making a big impact off the bench for the Italian side this season.
The 19-year-old winger came on for his Champions League debut in the loss to Benfica and provided an assist six minutes after his introduction.
He then got another assist a matter of days later in 1-0 win over Leece within a minute of being subbed on by manager Max Allegri for his third first-team appearance.
The teenager's contract expires at the end of this season and Juve are keen to tie him down to a long-term deal, claim The Athletic.
With his deal running out a number of top clubs are beginning to circle.

Negotiations between the player and Juventus are supposedly set to take place imminently.
Iling-Junior was on the books of Chelsea for nine years from 2013 to 2020 before departing and opting for a switch to Italy despite Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich rumoured to have been interested.
He has featured in a number of age groups for England and has been capped three times at Under-20s level.
Juventus have got off to a slow start this campaign and sit 7th in Serie A but remain in touching distance of the top four.

The club have also failed to make it out the group stage of the Champions League and may drop into the Europa League.
Pressure is building on Allegri but club legend turned vice-president Pavel Nedved has said they still have "full faith" in their boss.
And he may not be able to count on Iling-Junior as he is expected to be out until after the World Cup with an ankle injury.
