​Reports emanating from Germany have suggested that Schalke 04 left-back Sead Kolasinac is set to move to perennial Italian champions Juventus as a replacement for the outgoing Patrice Evra, according to Bundesliga Spotlight.

​​The 23-year-old Bosnian, who has been part of the first team set up at Schalke since September 2012, is viewed as the long-term successor to the Frenchman, who himself has been linked with a sensational return to former club Manchester United in recent weeks.
