Massimiliano Allegri has asked Juventus to sign Anthony Martial from Manchester United as a replacement for Gonzalo Higuain, according to reports in Italy.

The Argentine striker has been heavily linked with a move away from Juve this summer and he admitted last week that he would love to play in the Premier League.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Allegri is already considering replacements in the event of Higuains departure and has identified Martial as the 30-year-olds long-term successor in attack.

The report also claims that Allegri has Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata on his shortlist if Juventus are unable to sign Martial.

Last month, Chelsea were reportedly offered the chance to sign Higuain in an exchange deal involving Morata.
