The 19-year-old enjoyed a breakout season for Burnley last term. He played 21 Premier League games as he weighed in with three goals and two assists.
The budding youngster continued to enhance his reputation at the Toulon Tournament, where he produced heroics for England U20s.
Juventus will now monitor McNeil as they plan to watch him in Burnley's pre-season fixtures and in the new Premier League season.
But the Italian giants are plotting a bid for the promising player in August.
However, Burnley are reluctant to sell McNeil with the club holding out for at least £30 million.
The forward signed a new long-term contract with Burnley in January that runs until the summer of 2023.
McNeil has also attracted interest from Manchester City, Tottenham and Arsenal.
As mentioned above, Juventus remain in talks with De Ligt and Rabiot. They've reportedly reached an agreement with the 19-year-old Dutch defender. He's set to earn a mega wage package at the Turin outfit.
The club are also expected to secure the services of midfielder Rabiot, who'll join on a free transfer.
