Cape Town - Everton striker Romelu Lukaku and Borussia Dortmund playmaker Henrikh Mkhitaryan are both potential targets for Juventus, according to agent Mino Raiola.

Belgium international Lukaku has been in great form for the Toffees this season, banging in 25 goals from 36 appearances which has caught the eye of Manchester United.

"Lukaku? Of course, Juventus as a solution could go well," Raiola said to Gazzetta dello Sport. "But keep an eye on PSG and Real Madrid too for the Everton striker."

Armenia international Mkhitaryan has been equally impressive with 20 goals from 43 appearances as BVB have challenged Bayern Munich for the Bundesliga title once more this season.

"Mkhitaryan? I know that Allegri likes him," Raiola added. "And Micky would happily wear the Bianconeri shirt, but he needs to make a deal with [BVB head coach Thomas] Tuchel.

"It's true that his contract expires in 2017, but the Dortmund Coach deems him indispensable.

"It's more of the same with [midfielder Ilkay] Gundogan: that's why I consider this track to be difficult. Would he do well in Turin? I mustn't expose the player. I can only add that he's a very intelligent guy."
