Juventus are preparing to launch a bid to try and secure the services of Manchester City full-back Aleksandar Kolarov.
Kolarov joined the Premier League outfit from Lazio in 2010 and has failed to establish himself as a regular, competing with Gael Clichy for a starting spot.
Juventus have already seen one bid for the Serbia international knocked back but with the departure of Emanuel Giaccherini expected early next week, the Scudetto winners are expected to make another approach.
Giaccherini will be moving to the Premier League after Paolo Di Canio was able to secure a deal with the Old Lady.
Reports from Italy suggest Antonio Conte is keen to secure a season-long loan deal with an option to buy outright, whereas the English side would rather offload him straight away.
The 27-year-old has gained a reputation for his set-piece ability and has netted four times in 56 games for City.
