West Ham defender Angelo Ogbonna has been called up to the Italy squad as cover for the doubtful Giorgio Chiellini ahead of upcoming international friendlies.
Although Juve coach Massimiliano Allegri did not expect it to be a serious problem, a medical update is yet to be provided by the club.
The 33-year-old is now a doubt for Italy's pending friendlies against Argentina and England, with Ogbonna called up by interim coach Luigi Di Biagio in case the 96-cap veteran is unable to feature in either contest.
Ogbonna has played 24 times for West Ham in the Premier League this season and will hope to add to his 13 senior caps.
Indeed, the defender revealed his desire to return to the national team in February, telling the club's website: “Of course, I wish to come back to the national team,” he told the official West Ham website.
“I would love to play for Italy again, but for now West Ham is more important than anything else because we need a lot of points to get safe."
Ogbonna last played for Italy in 2016, in a 3-1 win over Israel.
