Paris Saint-Germain rebel Jeremy Menez may find himself with renewed interest from Juventus, after manager Antonio Conte gave the go-ahead for a winter move.
Menez has become slightly out-of-favour at PSG at the moment, this after being sanctioned for leaving the bench early in a Champions League game against Benfica.
Menez expressed his frustration at not being called into action despite warming up, and it meant coach Laurent Blanc left him out of the squad for the subsequent league game against Marseille.
The former Liverpool target had been courted by Juventus in the summer transfer window, and could be given a way back into Serie A, according to Gazzetta dello Sport.
Juventus managing director Guiseppe Marotta has been given the all-clear to explore the possibility of a move in the winter transfer window.
The Serie A champions are understood to have shelved plans to sign Parma's Jonathan Biabiany, prompting attention to shift to Menez.
Menez spent three season with Roma between 2008 and 2011 before moving to PSG, and has struggled to nail down a regular starting berth at times.
And with just two appearances this season out of nine league games, it remains to be seen if Juventus make a formal approach for the former Monaco winger.
Menez's agent had earlier this summer expressed satisfaction at the interest in his client, at a time when Liverpool had also been sniffing around.
