Juventus target Villa defender Mellberg

Juventus are moving for Aston Villa's Bosman prospect Olof Mellberg.

Tuttosport says Juve chiefs want to bring the Sweden international to Italy in the summer when he comes off contract at Villa Park.

Juve want to add a new centre-half to coach Claudio Ranieri's squad and are turning to Mellberg after being priced out of a deal for Lokomotiv Moscow defender Branislav Ivanovic.
