Juventus are weighing up a move for Middlesbrough's Italian striker Massimo Maccarone, according to reports in the Italian media.
Despite persistent claims from the relegated Italian giant that no more of their stars will be allowed to leave the club, frontmen David Trezeguet and Zlatan Ibrahimovic continue to be linked with moves away from the Stadio Delle Alpi.
Livorno's forward Cristiano Lucarelli has been touted as a possible replacement in Turin, though the Tuscans insist the player is untransferable.
Bianconeri could be ready to offer Igor Tudor and Nicola Legrottaglie as an incentive to convince president Aldo Spinelli, but are considering other options as well.
Chievo's Carvalho de Oliveira Amauri is another man linked to the Old Lady, although he looks set to join Palermo, which is why Maccarone's name has come up.
The 26-year-old Galliate-born marksman has struggled to hold down a regular starting place throughout his time at The Riverside.
Juve are therefore rumoured to be considering signing the player on a season-long loan to help in their bid to win their way back out of Serie B in the coming season.
