The Juventus man is on loan at Benfica and he immediately became a fans favourite when he headed the winner against Lille in their opening UEFA Champions League contest.
Lippi now admits that Miccoli, previously touted as the 'new' Alessandro Del Piero, is under consideration for a recall to the Azzurri squad.
"I am constantly keeping him under observation," Lippi told Ojogo.
