Italian giants Juventus are chasing Tottenham centre half Younes Kaboul.

The Bianconeri are looking to add a new defender and the White Hart Lane stopper is being considered as an option, according to the Daily Mail.

Kaboul moved back to Tottenham nearly two years ago from Portsmouth for £9.5million, joining his former Pompey boss Harry Redknapp at White Hart Lane.

Redknapp has been pleased with the young Frenchman's performances, picking him to play for every minute of every one of Spurs' Barclays Premier League fixtures this season.

Juventus are currently sitting pretty at the top of Serie A, but feel they need defensive reinforcements come January to continue their good form.

Redknapp would be loath to see Kaboul leave, after being impressed with what is seen as his best season so far, in terms of form and appearances.

The 25-year-old may also be reluctant to move to a club where he was not guaranteed playing time, especially when his place in the France squad is by no means guaranteed leading up to Euro 2012.

The Old Lady have also been tracking a number of other defensive targets, with Kaboul seen as the cheapest option of these.

Borussia Dortmund's 22-year-old German international centre half Mats Hummels has been earmarked as a possible target, with Juve mooting a swap deal involving Serbian winger Milos Krasic.

They have also been closely tracking Zenit St Petersburg's Portuguese international defender Bruno Alves, but have been put off by the £15million price tag.
