Juventus could solve two problems in one fell swoop by handing Momo Sissoko to Schalke 04 in exchange for Klaas-Jan Huntelaar.
The Bianconeri need to cut down their squad after an early Europa League exit and bring in a new reliable centre-forward.
According to Tuttosport, they could resolve both issues simultaneously in an exchange with Schalke.
The German club would take unsettled midfielder Sissoko for €8m, or part of the payment for Dutch hitman Huntelaar.
He is no stranger to Serie A, as the former Ajax and Real Madrid forward was a flop at Milan before leaving in the summer.
He could return to Italy for Juventus, as preferred targets Edin Dzeko, Alberto Gilardino and Giampaolo Pazzini will be difficult to prise away.
