Liverpool Defender Sotiris Kyrgiakos Linked With Juventus - Report

Liverpool defender Sotiris Kyrgiakos is the latest defender who's being linked with a move to Serie A side Juventus. A report in Corriere dello Sport claims that La Vecchia Signora are considering making a move for the Greek international before the end of the transfer window.

Juventus coach Luigi Del Neri is eager to add some more depth to his defence and the Turin side have been linked with players such as Andrea Barzagli, Salvatore Bocchetti and Thomas Manfredini in the past couple of weeks.

However, Juve have now apparently turned their attention to the relatively cheap Kyrgiakos. The 31-year-old defender joined Liverpool from AEK Athens in the summer of 2009, but has so far failed to secure regular first team action at the English side.

Kyrgiakos' current contract with Liverpool runs until the summer of 2011 and the Reds are supposedly ready to cash in on the defender during this transfer window in order to prevent him from leaving on a free transfer next year.
