Juventus are being linked with Chievo defender Marco Andreolli as a possible replacement for the outbound Lucio.
The Brazilian yesterday admitted that he wants to leave the Turin giants in January after failing to get a regular game.
The Old Lady won’t block his desire, but they would need to find a replacement for him in the squad.
Andreolli is an option given that the former Inter player is only contracted with the Flying Donkeys until June 2013.
The versatile stopper, a former Italian Under-21 international, would thus be available for a nominal fee.
The 26-year-old has scored two goals in seven Serie A appearances so far this season.
Another option for La Signora would be Rubin Kazan stopper Salvatore Bocchetti as the former Genoa man’s contract with his Russian club expires in December 2013.
