Samuel Kuffour is expected to quit Bayern Munich in the summer for Italian giants Juventus.

The Ghana stopper has failed to agree terms over a new contract and he'll leave the German club for free at the end of the season.

The central defender, who is set to be handed European citizenship in the next month, would be welcomed by Fabio Capello (pictured).

The Juventus boss is a known fan of the international after he attempted to sign him while in charge of Roma.

Reports suggest that Juventus have already started negotiations with agent Fabio Parisi over a move.

The Delle Alpi outfit are keen to rejuvenate their central defensive options for the new campaign, due to the lack of cover for Lilian Thuram and Fabio Cannavaro.

Juve presently only have Paolo Montero and Ciro Ferrara at the club as possible alternatives, following the January departures of Nicola Legrottaglie, Mark Iuliano and Igor Tudor.

Given that Montero is widely considered as past his best, and that Ferrara will retire in the summer, the club need some new faces.

Inter were also keen on Kuffour but they now seem to be concentrating on Benfica's Luisao and Vincent Kompany of Anderlecht.
