Matija Nastasic is struggling to assert himself under Manuel Pellegrini and his time at Manchester City could be winding down.
The 21-year-old is seen as a great prospect but for the time being he isn't able to break into the first team and he is said to be becoming frustrated.
Nastasic is no stranger to Serie A having played for Fiorentina before joining City for £12 million in the summer of 2012. He is under contract until 2017.
Juventus director Beppe Marotta reportedly asked Manchester City for Nastasic on loan during the summer but were given a flat rejection.
However, talks between the two clubs may go better in January with Nastasic cooling his heels on the bench.
A possible formula for a deal is a paid loan for around £1 million with a permanent agreement possible in June 2015 for around £6 million.
Roma are also supposedly interested in Nastasic and may challenge Juventus who they are also fighting in the battle for the Serie A title.
