Juventus' Grigoris Kastanos links with Man United, Everton cooled by agent

Juventus youngster Grigoris Kastanos' agent has told ESPN FC that he is unaware of interest from Manchester United and Everton in the midfielder.

Recent reports in England and Italy have suggested Premier League duo United and Everton are weighing up a move for Kastanos, 18, after sending scouts to watch him in action.

However, Kastanos' agent, Yanni Evangelopoulos, says such speculation is news to him and that his client is currently only focusing on developing at Juventus.

"I know nothing about interest from Manchester United and Everton apart from what I have seen in the media," Evangelopoulos told ESPN FC.

"Grigoris, although young, is on a professional contract at Juventus and he was with the first team this summer on preseason.

"It is nice to hear of reported interest from other clubs, but Juventus are also a big club -- in the top 10 in Europe in my opinion. Grigoris is focused on developing at Juventus and trying to do his best for them."

Kastanos is highly regarded across Europe, having already won two caps for Cyprus and started their recent World Cup qualifier against Belgium.

The teenager joined Juventus from Enosis Neon Paralimni in 2014 and, although he has yet to make his competitive first-team debut for the Serie A club, he did feature for them in preseason.
