Juventus are seeking a loan deal for Tottenham midfielder Luka Modric.

The 23-year-old has endured a difficult start to life in North London since moving from Dinamo Zagreb in the summer, although he is not rumoured to be looking for a move. The diminutive youngster was frequently played out of position by Juande Ramos, but has been returned to his preferred role behind the striker by Harry Redknapp. The consensus is that Juventus will take Modric on loan in January with a view to a permanent transfer next summer.
