Both Tottenham and North London rivals have been linked with Italian international forward Sebastian Giovinco, but he remains out of favour at Juventus.
The diminutive star has been second-choice with Carlos Tevez and Fernando Llorente leading the line and it has become increasingly likely that Giovinco may leave Turin.
Giovinco's contract expires next summer and negotiations over a new deal have progressed slowly, but the homegrown player still seems reluctant to move on.
This weekend, Giovinco is expected to get a chance to convince coach Massimiliano Allegri that he should be starting regularly.
Italian website Sportmediaset believes that after a shock 1-0 loss to Genoa, Juventus boss Allegri is ready to make some changes, especially with a crucial Champions League game against Olympiacos coming up.
Juve were beaten 1-0 in Greece and need to make sure they deliver, so Tevez may be rested and Giovinco may be given a chance against Empoli.
The Italian champions will be confident of beating minnows Empoli even with a second-string side, so Allegri may take some chances.
Giovinco needs to impress if he is to show Juventus that they should give him a new contract, otherwise he could finally be headed for the Premier League next year.
