There are growing reports in Germany that Juventus could reunite James Rodriguez with Cristiano Ronaldo after his spell at Bayern Munich.
According to Sport Bild, the Colombia international could well make the move as early as January.
While there is also interest from several Premier League clubs, Juve appear to be in a more advanced position.
James shares an agent with Cristiano Ronaldo – Jorge Mendes – and there is a strong rapport between the two players after they worked together at Real Madrid.
Bayern bought him from Madrid in the summer of 2017, on a paid two-year loan deal worth €10m.
There is an option to buy at the end of the season for another €32.5m.
It is reported Bayern are no longer prepared to pay that sum and are instead ready to cash out.
This gives Juventus a much bigger chance of securing the forward, as there is no room for him at Real Madrid.
The 27-year-old scored three goals with two assists in 10 competitive games for Bayern this season.
