Leandro Paredes has caught the attention of AC Milan and Juventus with his good performances for Boca Juniors, according to a report.

AC Milan are looking to rebuild their team after the departure of several key players in the off-season.

According to reports, sporting director Ariedo Braida sees the 18-year-old as a valuable addition to their squad.

Paredes would fit Milan's new transfer policy of signing promising youngsters rather than accomplished stars, and the San Siro side are closely monitoring the attacking midfielder's progress, with an eye on a transfer at the end of the season.

Juve, meanwhile, feel the Argentine midfielder would be a good signing in the long term, as they aim to add some more creativity to their squad.

The Serie A champions have scouted Paredes on four different occasions this year, and the youngster has done enough to impress the Turin powerhouse.

Paredes, who has also been linked with Real Madrid, has an ongoing contract with Boca, but an offer in the region of five million euros could be enough to lure him away from his club.
