Juventus have joined the list of Serie A sides interested in securing the services of the central defender Daniel Agger at the end of the season.
Milan wanted to recruit the Denmark international during the January transfer window but other Italian sides, including Juventus, appear to be prospective suitors for a player who has said he wants to leave if denied a regular first-team place.
Despite suggestions from Andrei Voronin that Robbie Keane's departure to Tottenham may presage his own early return from a season's loan at Hertha Berlin, the player claimed yesterday he has now opened talks over extending the loan spell.
"Yes, we have spoken for the first time," Voronin said. "It was a good talk. I think we are on a positive path," added his agent, Andrey Golowasch.
