Juventus are chasing FC Brno's attacking midfielder Lubos Kalouda.

Kalouda, who earned a silver medal in last summer's Under 20 World Cup in Canada, has been impressing with his performances for Brno in the Czech league, making 24 appearances and scoring five goals.

"We are in Italy and are negotiating with top Italian clubs about some players, I will not reveal their names now," agent Pavel Zika told CTK.

FC Brno's majority shareholder Roman Pros, however, has confirmed Juventus' interest in Kalouda.

"We have announced our requirements to Juventus but so far there has been no specific offer," he said.

"After we sold [Mario] Holek, we don't need to sell other players. We would sell Kalouda only if the offer was very lucrative."

Price

According to rumours the transfer fee for Kalouda is in the region of around £3million.

The 20-year-old has also recently been called up for the first time to the senior national squad as Czech Republic coach Karel Bruckner picked him for the forthcoming friendlies with Greece and Poland.

Important

Meanwhile, Juventus captain Alessandro Del Piero says the team are at an important point of the season now.

"It can be said it's an important moment for us. We have shown a lot of engagement. Currently we have been getting good results and we are in a really good place in the table. We have faith and this is important," he said.

On his chances of playing for Italy in the forthcoming Euro 2008 tournament, Del Piero added: "[Roberto] Donadoni is free to make his choices. My only thought is to try and continue doing good things and hoping he might call me up. I know it will happen if I continue to engage myself the way I am doing, and I must do it with Juve."
