Liverpool are in the market for a centre back with concerns over the future of Sebastian Coates.

The Uruguay defender is attracting interest from Italian clubs. Juventus are thought to be among them as they look to replace 34-year-old Lucio.

The Brazilian has had a tricky time of it in Turin since his switch to Inter and is ready to head back to Germany.

Uruguayan youngster Sebastian Coates is yet to really make his mark at Anfield but the young defender is certainly a player with a bright future and as such Brendan Rodgers will fight tooth and nail to prevent his departure but interest from Serie A title holders Juventus may be hard to fight off.

The 22 year old, who helped his country to a Copa America title before moving to Liverpool, joined fellow Uruguayan Luis Suarez at the Merseyside club in the summer of 2011 and when used has on occasion looked suspect but is generally considered a player with a great deal of potential, potential Juventus boss Antonio Conte is keen to harness.

Coates has his work cut out forcing his way into the Liverpool first team picture on a regular basis because despite the club’s average start to the season regular centre-back pairing Martin Skrtel and Daniel Agger have been excellent and as such the former Nacional man is still playing the waiting game.

Juventus brought in Lucio to beef up their defence but have made little use of the Brazilian, hence the interest in a younger back-up option.
