A loan move until the summer would cost Juve €1.5 million and, should they then take up an option to sign him permanently, they would pay another €3.5m.

The 28-year-old can play either in the centre of defence or on the left. With Giorgio Chiellini out for three months through injury and Lucio having rescinded his Juve contract to join Sao Paulo, his arrival would be welcomed by coach Antonio Conte.

Peluso, who has three caps for Italy, joined Atalanta in 2009 from AlbinoLeffe.
