Finding a suitable replacement for the former Los Blancos striker could prove a difficult task as he has been a consistent performer since his arrival in Italy in 2018, having scored 101 goals and provided 22 assists in 133 games for the Bianconeri.

With his current contract expiring in June next year, he has been linked with a return to Manchester United and a move to Paris Saint-Germain, among other clubs.

According to the Daily Mirror, Juve have drawn up a shortlist of seven players they will consider signing should Ronaldo leave, consisting of forwards from Premier League, Ligue 1, LaLiga and Serie A teams.

Among them are Napoli's Andrea Petagna and Roma's Edin Dzeko, in addition to former Inter Milan star Mauro Icardi, who now runs out for PSG and has been linked with the Old Lady in the past.
