Juventus are interested in Inter Milan striker Hernan Crespo.

Controcampo says Juve coach Claudio Ranieri fancies the former Chelsea forward as a potential alternative to No1 attacking target Amauri, of Palermo.

Only last night, Crespo hinted that along with Roma, Juve had also been in contact: "In recent days, in addition to Roma my agents have made progress with many important clubs and there is some opportunity for negotiations.

"In these cases, however, they must talk with the club and not with me."
