Juventus are in talks with Valencia over a January deal for Joaquin. Gazzetta dello Sport says Juve chief Alessio Secco remained in Spain after their victory at Real Madrid to hold a new round of negotiations with Valencia for the winger.

Joaquin has a contract until 2012 with Los Che, which carries a £30 million buyout clause. However, the club's difficult financial situation has given Secco hope of clinching a winter market agreement for Joaquin.
