Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri believes Giorgio Chiellini’s injury is nothing serious after the defender was hurt against Atalanta on Wednesday.
Chiellini came off in the first half of Juve’s shock 3-0 defeat in the Coppa Italia with a suspected calf injury.
Martin Caceres has returned to the Serie A leaders this month, while Medhi Benatia departed, while they are also linked with Parma defender Bruno Alves.
But Allegri feels Chiellini’s calf injury is not a major concern, adding Caceres would be available if the 34-year-old was sidelined.
“Let’s see,” he told JTV.
“He has a discomfort on the outer calf. It should not be anything to worry about, otherwise there will be Caceres.”
Juventus look to bounce back when they host Parma in Serie A action on Saturday.
