Juventus are stepping up their bid for Villarreal striker Giuseppe Rossi. The Italy international is Juve's top attacking target, says Tuttosport, though they also have alternatives lined up.

Palermo centre-forward Edinson Cavani and Lazio ace Goran Pandev are also under consideration. Pandev is also being tracked by Inter Milan and likely to leave in January.

Meanwhile, it's emerged that representatives of Bordeaux striker Marouane Chamakh were in Turin yesterday for talks with Juve officials. The Morocco international is off contract in June.
