Juventus are ready to swoop for Pablo Daniel Osvaldo after the striker hit back at Roma boss Zdenek Zeman.
Osvaldo had already been a target for the Bianconeri over the summer, but that interest could be revived in January.
The Italian international of Argentine origin was dropped along with Daniele De Rossi for last week’s 2-0 win over Atalanta.
“I was disappointed by Zeman’s words, though. People can say anything about me except that I don’t put the effort in,” he said after scoring for Italy against Armenia.
“Did we clear the air? There was nothing to clear.”
Tuttosport now claim Juve are ready to offer Fabio Quagliarella as part of an exchange deal to bring Osvaldo to Turin.
He would also solve their striker problem, as Nicklas Bendtner has barely featured for a handful of minutes since arriving on loan from Arsenal.
