Tevez, 31, has been Juve’s top scorer in the past two seasons, and is under contract with Juve for another year but is eager to return home to Argentina. Former club Boca Juniors are known to be keen to acquire his services and a deal could be completed as early as next week for the former Boca striker.

As for his Turin teammate Fernando Llorente, it has been reported that Liverpool are attempting to lure the Spanish striker to Merseyside as their efforts to try and sign Aston Villa striker Christian Benteke have come to a halt over the asking price.
