Juventus have moved to head off interest from Liverpool for striker Carlos Tevez.

Tevez is being linked with a return to England at Anfield as Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers seeks to boost his attack for next season's Champions League.

Sportmediaset says Juve GM Beppe Marotta is aware of the Reds push and has held talks with Tevez's camp in recent days.

Juve are willing to upgrade Tevez's contract to convince him to remain in Turin.
