London, Oct.9 (ANI): Juventus are preparing to deepen Liverpool's misery with a January raid for 24-year-old Argentine midfielder Javier Mascherano.
The Turin giants are ready to offer 23-million-pounds as they seek to grab the Serie A title away from Inter Milan, reports The Sun.
Mascherano is already a target for Barcelona, with Liverpool rejecting an approach for him from the European champions during the summer.
Mascherano is tempted to move away from Merseyside even though he is under contract until 2012. He is believed to be unhappy at the break-up of his partnership with Xabi Alonso, who joined Real Madrid in the summer. (ANI)
