Juventus are considering a move for Ajax's Maxwell.

The Brazilian has refused to sign a contract extension with Ajax, and unless he does so he will be free to leave the Dutch side next summer.

Reports in Italy suggest that Juventus will agree terms with the defender in January, with Maxwell keen to test himself in a stronger league and the Turin side eager to reinforce their backline.

Fabio Capello has an ageing defence, and is casting his eye over various teams for possible new players.
