Chelsea legend Gianfranco Zola has backed Juventus to swoop for Manchester City outcast Carlos Tevez.

Zola, the former Chelsea star and West Ham United manager, says Juventus should offer the Argentine a way out of England - and he believes they will win the Serie A title if they do so.

"His arrival, even in January, would allow a better balance in Juventus' game," Zola told Tuttosport.

"For me Tevez has the spirit you need in any player to succeed in Antonio Conte's Juventus. He is changing their game and I like it. With Tevez they could win the Scudetto."
