Bayern Munich seem set to renew their interest in World Cup winner Mauro Camoranesi, according to reports in the Italian press.
The Juventus midfielder had been linked with a transfer to the Bundesliga last summer, but decided to stay in Turin, despite the fact that his club were forced to play in Serie B following their involvement in a corruption scandal.
The German giants are still hoping to fill the void left by Michael Ballack's transfer to Chelsea and with Sebastian Deisler being forced to end his career and Mehmet Scholl ready to retire next summer, a couple of fresh faces are expected to arrive for the new season.
Gazzetta dello Sport claims that Juve are ready to swap Camoranesi for Bayern's Brazilian defender Lucio and although the Germans are highly unlikely to accept such a deal, Bayern could be tempted to table a bid for the 30-year-old.
The Argentine-born midfielder, who had also been linked with the likes of Lyon, Valencia and Inter, is tied to Juventus until 2009.
