The report claims that West Ham are keen to strike a deal to sign him on loan, with an option to buy at the end of the 2019/20 campaign.
Juventus are said to have asked for €40m, although it remains unclear as to what West Ham’s response to this demand has been.
West Ham have missed out on a number of strikers already this summer, with deals for Maxi Gomez and Sebastien Haller both breaking down.
The Hammers are looking for a new striker after Marko Arnautovic left the club to move to China earlier this week.
Strikers West Ham could sign
McBurnie impressed at Swansea last season and could be ready to make the step up.
Maupay would be a solid addition to West Ham’s current squad.
Batshuayi is a proven Premier League goalscorer.
The Italian was excellent last season and would be a top signing for the Hammers.
