Andrea Dossena's agent, Roberto La Florio, believes that Juventus will decide if they are going to lodge a bid for the Liverpool defender in the next week.
The Italian has been linked with a move away from Anfield all summer, only a year after signing for £7million from Udinese.
The 27-year-old has struggled to regularly break into the Reds' first-team all season and is thought to be top of Juve's shopping list along with Lyon's Fabio Grosso.
La Florio highlights that the Italian giants will decide between the two in the next seven days with Liverpool likely to recoup the majority of the fee they paid for the full-back 12 months ago.
"I don't know if you can call it an ultimatum, but I think that Juve will decide what to do within think the next week," he told Calciomercato.it.
"The left-back position is a necessity for the Bianconeri and the directors are not willing to drag this on.
"However, I still think it's a two-horse race between Andrea and Grosso. Dossena's age and wages are on his side.
"The last time I met with Liverpool we did not talk about numbers, I can only say they paid more for him last summer."
Dossena has also not rejected the possibility of remaining at Anfield but La Florio admits that it is more than likely the player will move on.
He added: "Andrea has subtly expressed his desire to join Juve in recent days, but he also said that he loves it in Liverpool.
"We'll definitely know more about it next week and Juve remain the most likely destination for him."
