Juventus are thought to be targeting a move for Liverpool striker Peter Crouch, according to reports in Italy.
Reports suggest Juventus have lined up Crouch as a possible replacement for David Trezeguet.

Juventus are now believed to be drawing up a list of targets to replace Trezeguet, should the Frenchman leave Turin.
Crouch is thought to come under the gaze of Juve officials, as doubts continue to grow over his Liverpool future.
It has even been suggested that Liverpool and Juventus might do a straight swap between Crouch and Trezeguet.
The England international has struggled to hold down a regular place in Rafa Benitez's side this season, with Dirk Kuyt and Craig Bellamy keeping him out of the side.
Newcastle United have been credited with an interest in the player, but Crouch insists he has no plans to quit Anfield.
Juventus are also thought to have targeted Ajax ace Klaas Jan Huntelaar and Werder Bremen star Miroslav Klose as possible striking reinforcements.
