Juventus are reported to be chasing the loan signature of unhappy Southampton striker Pablo Osvaldo, according to the Daily Mirror.
The Italian only arrived at St. Mary's this summer for a club-record fee of £12.8m but is said to be unhappy with life on the south coast.
Since moving, Osvaldo has consistently found himself pushed out in a peripheral role to accommodate Saints icon Rickie Lambert as their excellent start to the season continues.
The Italian champions' manager Antonio Conte has taken an interest in the forward's situation despite already being blessed with the riches of Carlos Tevez, Sebastian Giovinco, Fabio Quagliarella and Mirko Vucinic up front.
He is keen to take the unsettled Argentina-born striker on loan in January, with an option to make the move permanent.
A move back home to his native Italy may suit Osvaldo.
With the World Cup looming large and Italy's place in the tournament more than secure, the ex-Roma man will want to give himself the best possible chance of making the plane for Brazil.
Osvaldo has only scored once in seven appearances since moving from Roma.
