Juve on Ilicic, Casemiro and Alex

Juventus are already looking to January with Josip Ilicic, Casemiro and Chelsea defender Alex in their sights.

The Bianconeri are top of the table under Antonio Conte, but still want to improve the squad during the mid-season session.

According to the latest reports from Italy, Juve are prepared to part with Amauri, Fabio Quagliarella and Manchester United target Milos Krasic.

In order to reinforce, they are eyeing Palermo midfielder Ilicic, who is also of strong interest to Claudio Ranieri's Inter.

Amauri could be used as part of the deal, handing the Italian-Brazilian back to his former club.

Another name circulating in the media is Casemiro, the Sao Paolo starlet who had already been in talks with Inter, Roma and Milan over the summer.

It is well known Juventus are in advanced negotiations with Sao Paolo for defender Rhodolfo.

They could also look to another Brazilian defender in the form of Chelsea man Alex.

“My agent has spoken to Juve and playing in Italy would be a dream. This is a great opportunity for me,” Alex was quoted as saying.
