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.

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
