Rubin Kazan defender Salvatore Bocchetti has failed to rule out a January move to Italian giants Juventus.
The Old Lady may add a fresh centre-back to their squad in the New Year and the former Genoa man is thought to be an option.
“It’s really nice to be so regularly linked with Juventus,” the Italian international told Sky Sport Italia on Thursday.
“I’m happy to be playing my football in Russia, but if I was to receive an offer then I would take it into consideration.”
Bocchetti signed a three-and-a-half year deal with Rubin in the summer of 2010 after Genoa were reportedly offered €14m for him.
The former Ascoli, Lanciano and Frosinone man, now 24, has won five caps for his country – but his last appearance came in June 2010 against Switzerland.
