Juventus are desperate to bring Fabio Capello back to the club.

Tuttosport says Juve president Jean-Claude Blanc will be in England this week to speak with Three Lions coach Capello. He also hopes to meet with Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez.

Capello is tied to England until 2012 and has stated he wants to remain in the job.

Blanc will attempt to convince Capello to return to Turin - and hope the rise of Roma will inspire him to accept their offer.

The current Juve regime are facing humiliation with Claudio Ranieri leading Roma to the top of the table less than a year after being sacked by the fallen Turin giants.
