Calciomercato in Italy say the Serie A champions are ready to make an offer for the 29-year-old as they look to bolster their defence next season.

Juve has defensive issues to address as Giorgio Chiellini is 33, Medhi Benatia’s future looks unclear and Daniel Rugani is struggling to make an impact.

Boateng is open to the idea of Germany again after his season at the Etihad eight years ago.

He told Sky Germany recently: “Foreign countries are always interesting, you do not have a lot of chances, so everyone has to decide for themselves whether they want to gain more experience.

“I am now at the point where you think about it again.”

Alongside the defender, Arturo Vidal and Thiago Alcantara could be surplus to requirements at the Allianz Arena.

Boateng and Germany will look to bounce back after their shock defeat to Mexico when they face Sweden on Saturday in Sochi.
