“Hearing that Juventus are again interested in me makes me very happy,” said Bocchetti. "It’s not the first time, but maybe this time…

“Juventus would clearly be an excellent opportunity for my career and my agent is keeping me informed on everything.

“I need to understand whether the possibility is concrete or not, but I want to underline that I still have a year left on my contract with Rubin and I’m happy in Russia.”

Bocchetti left Genoa for Rubin in a 10 million Euros deal in 2010, but been tipped for Juve with Leonardo Bonucci facing a possible ban as part of the match-fixing probe.

“This leaves a bitter taste in my mouth. It’s a shame that my name is appearing alongside Leonardo’s issue – I hope he can sort things out and as soon as possible.

“I have a good relationship with Juventus’ Italian internationals. It would be nice to team up with them again."
