Goal.com revealed the Bianconeri were eyeing up a summer swoop on Torino’s promising defender, and were ready to spend in the region of 14 million euros.
However the 24-year-old – who has five caps for Italy - has dampened speculation linking him to the Serie A rivals, but admits he wants to play European football.
He told Tuttosport: “For now, Juventus are not in my future – I just see Granata."
But when asked about a potential transfer away from Italy, he added: “A move abroad? Why not?
"My dream is to play in a Champions League final.”
