Roy Hodgson could be on his way to Italy, with Juventus leading the chase for the Fulham boss.

The Turin giants crashed out of the Europa League at the hands of Hodgson's men at the last 16 stage.

On his way?: Juventus tag Roy Hodgson

And with Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez snubbing them, Juventus see the much-travelled Hodgson as the ideal man to bring back the glory days.

The 62-year-old is on a rolling one-year contract and said: 'If the day comes when a so-called big club wants me, and I'm available, then I would be happy to do it.'

Juventus, who will finish seventh in Serie A this season, have been courting Benitez to replace interim boss Alberto Zaccheroni.

But now they are eyeing Hodgson, who has already bossed Italian outfits Inter Milan and Udinese.

Hodgson, who speaks perfect Italian, along with three other languages fluently, saved Fulham from relegation after joining them in December 2007 and only this week saw his side narrowly lose 2-1 to Atletico Madrid in the Europa League final.
