Benfica have opened talks about making Fabrizio Miccoli's loan deal into a permanent move.
The Italian striker joined Benfica on loan from Juventus last summer after dropping down the pecking order at Stadio Delle Alpi.
Miccoli has impressed at Benfica during his loan stint and Ronald Koeman is keen to keep him at Estadio da Luz.
Juventus have admitted they are willing to sell Miccoli and Benfica are thought to be lining up a three-year deal for the diminutive hit-man.
Meanwhile, Miccoli has been included in the squad to face Liverpool in the UEFA Champions League this week after returning to action last weekend with the winner against Estrela Amadora.
