Juventus have reportedly failed with an approach for Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong.

The 23-year-old starred for Ajax during the 2018-19 campaign before joining the Spanish champions in last summer's transfer window.

De Jong has been in impressive form for Barca this term, contributing two goals and four assists in 37 appearances in all competitions.

The Netherlands international penned a five-year deal upon his arrival at Camp Nou, but according to Sport , Juve recently enquired whether the midfielder might be available this summer.

The report claims that Quique Setien's side were quick to turn down the Italian club's enquiry, making it clear that the Dutchman would not be available for any price ahead of the 2020-21 season.

Barca, meanwhile, are said to be preparing to battle Liverpool for the signature of RB Leipzig centre-forward Timo Werner ahead of this summer's transfer window.
