Trezeguet, 32, is expected to leave the Bianconeri before the close of the transfer window and has been linked with all manner of clubs in recent weeks.

Juventus' all-time record foreign goalscorer, with 172 goals to his name, is reported to be close to joining promoted Spanish side Hercules, but a move to the Premier League may yet be a possibility.

"I think tomorrow [Saturday] will be a decisive day," Antonio Caliendo told Tuttomercatoweb.com. "Lazio? He will not go there because Juventus don't want to sell him to an Italian team. Zaragoza, West Ham and Birmingham are interested though."

Juventus have sold Diego to Wolfsburg and lost striker Amauri to injury recently, but the Serie A giants are expected to strengthen their squad with the loan addition of Napoli forward Fabio Quagliarella.
