Juventus midfielder Tiago has admitted that he could be tempted to head for pastures new this summer.

The Portugal international has fallen out of favour in Turin and accepts that a fresh challenge could be required in order to resurrect his career.

He has already taken in spells in England, Portugal and France, and admits he would be happy to try his luck in any of those countries.

Having made a name for himself at Benfica, he later proved to be a useful addition to the Chelsea squad, before catching the eye during a trophy-laden spell at Lyon.

With reports suggesting a number of English clubs are tracking his availability, he may well get the opportunity to enjoy a second stint in the Premier League.

A summer switch is by no means guaranteed, though, and Tiago admits he could still be battling for a starting berth at Juve at the start of the 2009/10 campaign.

"My contract with Juventus runs until 2012, but in football you never know," he told Maisfutebol.

"The French league is not massively media exposed, but I enjoyed my time there. Then, obviously the Premier League is the most exciting competition, whereas the Italian league is too tactical for me.

"Am I going to return to Portugal? The thing is that I never won the domestic league, so going back there could be a nice chance."
