Rubin Kazan stopper Salvatore Bocchetti is once again being linked with a possible move to Italian champions Juventus.
The defender’s name is a constant in the transfer rumour mill and the Old Lady are once more being paired with the centre-back.
However, Bocchetti could be closer to a transfer than he ever has been given his contractual situation with the Russians.
The former Genoa player is only tied to his present outfit until December 2013 and it is unclear whether a renewal is on the cards.
Bocchetti, who has also been linked with Napoli, is said to want a Serie A return in order to push for a place in Cesare Prandelli’s international plans.
The 25-year-old moved to Rubin from Genoa in 2010 for a fee believed to be around the €15m mark.
