The champions have joined Manchester City in considering a move for the Juventus right-back, who won a league and cup double last season in his first year in Italy. Goal's Sam Lee reported at the weekend that City were the closest to a deal, but Antonio Conte really wants to strengthen his side and he views Alves as the ideal man for the right wing-back role of his 3-4-3 formation.
Representatives of Brazil right-back Dani Alves have held talks with Juventus chief Beppe Marotta today that could lead to the 34-year-old being allowed to leave on a free transfer.
4 foreign inmates tunnel out of Bali prison
Davidson, 33, who fled drug charges in Perth, spent a year in Bali before he was jailed for using fraudulent travel documents. Prabawa said police had distributed pictures of the escaped inmates to police stations across Bali .
Dani Alves is keen on a move to the Premier League. I'll say it again.
The pair seem to share a great deal of mutual respect; Alves labelling the cerebral Spanish coach a "genius" in an article written for The Players' Tribune recently.
The 34-year-old is still considered one of the best right backs in the world and will look to fill a space left by Pablo Zabaleta and Bacary Sagna, both of whom have been released. If you turn the word "football" backwards, it spells "Pep'".
And ahead of the game, the four time Champions League victor stirred the pot a little bit when he admitted he only found out about City's existence when they were taken over by Abu Dhabi United Group, in 2009.
