In demand: Modric is on Juve's radar

Luka Modric's Italian representative has claimed that a summer move to Italy was a possibility for the Tottenham

playmaker.

Modric has enjoyed a good first season in the Premier League since his move to Spurs for £16.5million last summer, and has since attracted interest from Juventus, who are keen to find a replacement for retiring midfielder Pavel Nedved.

Asked whether the Croat could make the switch to Serie A at the end of the season, FIFA agent Sabatino Durante claimed: 'He certainly could, but a lot depends on the economic situation. Modric will not leave London for any less than 24m euros (£22.3m).

'Modric has been one of the best midfielders in Europe for the last two or three years, because he has just the right mix of quantity and quality.

'He can play just behind the strikers, or in Nedved's position just behind the strikers. Basically, he can do everything.'
