Juve turn to Bocchetti

Juventus' desire to sign a defender before the end of the day could lead them to Salvatore Bocchetti.

The stopper is presently playing his football with Rubin Kazan, but he would welcome a move back to Italy.

Napoli have been associated with a swoop for his services, but the Old Lady have now also joined the queue for his signature.

The Bianconeri need a new centre-back and time is running out for director general Beppe Marotta.

It's claimed that the Turin giants are hoping to sign the Italian international on loan, with the option to buy next summer.

Juventus have been paired with a host of stoppers recently, but Diego Lugano left Fenerbahce for Paris SG and Sao Paulo told them that Rhodolfo wasn't for sale.

The Turin side are also in talks with Zenit St Petersburg regarding a possible swap deal between centre-backs Leonardo Bonucci and Bruno Alves.
