MAY 22, 2014 12:09p ET
The champions are looking to reinforce their midfield line and are keen to acquire the 23-year-old.
Pereyra, signed from River Plate in 2011, scored two goals in 36 league appearances for Udinese this season.
"Pereyra is a target of Juventus," Udinese sporting director Cristiano Giaretta said to Sky Italia. "There is a legitimate interest from them and we have an open dialogue wth Juve.
"We expect a good ending."
Udinese have yet to appoint a new coach for next season following the decision by Francesco Guidolin to step down this week after four years.
Guidolin will remain with the club having accepted a supervisory role.
Former Chievo and Genoa coach Luigi Del Neri remains the number one candidate to replace Guidolin.
"In the past few days we have reduced the list of candidates, we are also considering foreign coaches," Giaretta said. "We hope to appoint one in the near future.
"We are looking for a coach that has clear ideas and is proud to guide Udinese."
