Skysports.com understands Manchester City are waiting to find out if Juventus are willing to sell duo Giorgio Chiellini and Manuele Blasi.
City are believed to be chasing the Italian duo as Sven Goran Eriksson looks to reshape his squad at Eastlands.
Italian Under 21 international Chiellini is believed to be considering his future at Juventus as he is concerned about his first-team chances with the Bianconeri.
Blasi's position at Juventus also remains uncertain with the midfielder having returned from a loan spell at Fiorentina last season.
Eriksson is keen to bring in some new faces before the start of the new season and he sees the duo as key additions to his squad.
The agent of both players, Davide Lippi, has revealed City are interested in the pair and that he is meeting with Juventus to find out what their plans are for the duo.
"I am planning to meet Juventus on Tuesday to discuss the futures of Giorgio and Manuele," Lippi told skysports.com.
"Manchester City are interested in both players and I am going to meet Juventus to see if these moves are possible.
"Both players would be happy to play in the Premier League and Manchester City, but it all depends on Juventus.
"They both like English football and the fact Eriksson is there would be a big factor for them to go there.
"However it depends on the price and whether Juventus want to sell them or not."
