Sinisa Mihajlovic is being linked with Claudio Ranieri's job at Juventus. Il Giornale says the former Inter Milan assistant coach is under consideration as Juve's board weigh up their options amid the current crisis.

Roberto Mancini has also been discussed, but his high wage demands and ambition to work in England all but rules him out.

Juve favourite Ciro Ferrara, meanwhile, would prefer to remain with the national team, so strengthening Mihajlovic's prospects if Ranieri fails to turn results around.
