Atalanta defender Federico Peluso is poised to join Serie A champions Juventus for the rest of the season after undergoing a medical in Turin.

The 28-year-old was the subject of a failed approach from Juve in the summer but the league leaders have moved to recruit the Italy international once again.

A statement on juventus.com read: "Federico Peluso is having medical tests in Turin this morning. After a series of examinations at the Clinica Fornaca di Sessant, he will undergo further tests at the Instituto di Medicina dello Sport."

Bianconeri boss Antonio Conte, whose side lead Serie A by eight points, is looking for cover at the back given the recent departure of Brazilian veteran Lucio and the absence of vice-captain Giorgio Chiellini through injury.

Equally comfortable at centre-back and at left full-back, Peluso has made over 100 appearances for Atalanta and made his international debut from the bench in Italy's friendly defeat to England in August.
