Juventus have sent scouts to monitor Nigerian starlet Henry Onyekuru, who is quickly becoming one of the most wanted players in Europe after Barcelona, Manchester United, Tottenham and Stoke City have expressed interest. 

The 20-year-old has been putting up an impressive form this year, has scored seven league goals in 14 matches and is partially responsible for Anderlecht's third place in the Belgium First Division - with HLN (via Calciomercato) reporting that the Italian giants are actively pursuing an interest in him. 

He was also called up by Nigeria manager Gernot Rohr in the summer, and made his debut with a national team in a 3-0 win against Togo. He also became one of the protagonists of Nigeria's qualification for the World Cup after being featured during the team's key draw against Algeria.

Juventus have recently joined an already impressive bunch of clubs - both from the Premier League and around Europe - who want to pin him down. The Old Lady are looking to improve their attack after Mario Mandzukic had a slow start to the season and Gonzalo Higuain is still struggling to put up good performances. 

The Bianconeri have also expressed their interest in Manchester City's 19-year-old midfielder Javairo Dilrosun, who will be out of contract next summer and has already been eyed by Liverpool and Borussia Dortmund. 

The Daily Mail reports that Manchester City will be keen to keep him, but several European clubs would use their power in order to secure him.
