According to Il Bianconero, Wolverhampton Wanderers are leading the case for Juventus ace Daniele Rugani following interest from Leicester City.

The Italian defender has been linked with a summer move after a frustrating campaign.

Rugani has made just four starts in Serie A this season. He told Tuttosport how he wanted to play more after many expected him to depart Juve in January.

According to The Telegraph, Leicester were considering a move for him in January but Juve’s asking price seemingly put the Foxes off making a bid.

Now, the latest reports from Italy claim Wolves lead the chase for Rugani.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side still have the possibility of playing Champions League football next season if they manage to win the Europa League next month.

Wolves are gaining momentum following an impressive rise over the past three years.

Rugani, despite not being a regular at Juve, would be another statement signing.

The 25-year-old is talented, strong in the tackle and confident on the ball.

TuttoJuve say Rugani is valued at £23 million. While the global health crisis has affected finances, it is still a modest fee and a potential opportunity.

Behind the experienced Giorgio Chiellini and Leonardo Bonucci, plus Matthijs de Ligt and Merih Demiral in the pecking order, Rugani needs a fresh start.

His attributes are ideal for Premier League football and Wolves have plenty going for them right now as they look to surpass Leicester and crack the top four.
