The centre-back has reportedly attracted the interest of the Serie A champions, and is keen to return to Italy after a two-year spell in Russia
Salvatore Bocchetti has admitted that he would be interested in leaving Rubin Kazan for Juventus if the opportunity arises.

The defender has recently been linked with a move to the Serie A champions, and the 25-year-old is keen to make the next step in his career.

"I am very pleased to hear that Juventus are interested in signing me. It is not the first time they are after me, but maybe this is the right time," Bocchetti stated to Tuttosport.

"I don't know yet how concrete their interest is, but Juventus would be a good opportunity for me to continue my career. My agent is keeping me up to date of what is happening.

"However, I want to underline that I still have a contract with Rubin Kazan for one more year, and I am quite happy in Russia."

Bocchetti joined Rubin Kazan from Genoa in the summer of 2010.
