Santacroce on Juve wish list

Napoli centre-back Fabiano Santacroce is being monitored by Juventus with a view to a transfer in January, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport.

The 24-year-old would be a decent back up for Juventus' first choice pairing of Leonardo Bonucci and Giorgio Chiellini. He also happens to be quite versatile.

In the meantime, Juventus are looking to offload Amauri, possibly even offering the Italy international as a makeweight in talks for Santacroce.

Amauri has been a disappointment since his arrival in Turin two years ago and his wages, which are said to be worth €4m a season are a burden on the club.

If he does leave amid reported interest from England, Juventus will need a replacement, even if it is only in the short term.

La Gazzetta understands that Juventus are looking to capitalise on the interest Momo Sissoko is generating in Germany by maybe offering him in exchange for Miroslav Klose or Claudio Pizarro.
