Italian champions Juventus are favourites to sign highly-rated Lyon midfielder Corentin Tolisso, according to reports in France .
But Juventus are currently ahead of their rivals in the race for Tolisso, with the Turin club reportedly in 'regular contact' with Lyon and Tolisso about a potential summer move.
The Frenchman, who was handed his international debut last month, is also the subject of interest from Italy as Inter, Milan and Napoli have all emerged as being interested.
Although Italy isn't the desired option for Tolisso, Napoli had a €37.5m bid turned down by Lyon, who are holding out for at least €45m.

In spite of Arsenal's interest for Tolisso, the uncertain situation with under-fire manager Arsene Wenger has put the breaks on a potential summer swoop as the player wants to be sure of the long-term manager before joining the club.
But it is Juventus who look like the most likely to prevail, especially after their professional 3-0 aggregate win over Barcelona in the Champions League, where they looked confident from start to finish against Luis Enrique's side.
First up for Tolisso and Lyon is a tough trip to Turkey to face Besiktas in a Europa League quarter-final, they lead 2-1 after the first-leg but conceded an away goal that could prove to be costly.
