Juventus could be on the verge of bringing back Uruguayan defender Martin Caceres for a third spell at the club.

Sky Sport Italia and Goal Italia report that Juve see Caceres as viable replacement for Medhi Benatia who looks poised to leave the club this month.

Caceres spent a significant period of time with the Bianconeri having won four Scudetti with the club during his second spell in Turin.

The Lazio defender is viewed as a good low-cost option having featured largely as a substitute for the Aquile along with an expiring contract in June.

Alternative options include Branislav Ivanovic, Martin Skrtel and Bruno Alves.
