Juventus coach Ranieri eyeing Liverpool's Kewell

Harry Kewell's five-year contract with Liverpool expires on June 30th, and there are apparently no plans to extend his stay on Merseyside.

Kewell, 29, whose time at Anfield has been dogged by injury, has made just a few appearances for Liverpool this season He is still struggling to overcome a series of injuries.

Fellow Australian, the Torino midfielder Vincenzo Grella, has confirmed that Juve are eyeing Kewell.

"It hasn't been talked about that much but when I was at Parma with Ranieri he asked for a lot of information about Harry," Grella told the Herald Sun.

"At that stage he didn't talk about a Kewell move to Juventus because he didn't know he was going to become the manager of Juventus.

"He was one of maybe three or four Aussies Ranieri asked me about.

"But he does know of the Aussie players and loves the mentality. He thinks that we're very underestimated as players. It could be an advantage for him."
