The 25-year-old, who is a naturalised Italian of Brazil origin, has been out of favour under Frank Lampard this season, and the Turin daily reports that Juve are keeping tabs on his situation.

Probable line-ups: Leverkusen-Juve

Gianluigi Buffon should be back in goal when Juventus face Bayer Leverkusen in the Champions League on Wednesday.

Buffon looks set to play his first Champions League game for Juve since he was sent off in a dramatic quarter-final defeat to Real Madrid two seasons ago.

Elsewhere, Miralem Pjanic is suspended for the next round of Serie A so he is free to start as the Old Lady’s playmaker against Leverkusen.

However, Sami Khedira and Rodrigo Bentancur are both injured and Emre Can is not eligible to play in Europe.
