Caceres is a long-haired central defender who is also comfortable in the full-back positions. Caceres started 12 of the last 14 qualifiers but missed the play-off because of injury. He made his international debut in 2007 against Group A opponents South Africa after impressing earlier that year at the U20 World Cup.
The highly-rated defender moved to Europe when he was still in his teens after impressing in his homeland for Defensor Sporting. Villarreal signed him in 2007 but immediately loaned him out to Recreativo de Huelva.
Following an impressive debut season in Spain, Barcelona paid £15m to bring him to the Nou Camp and he left Villarreal without playing a single match for the club.
His time in Catalonia was blighted by injury, but he figured 20 times as Barca won the league and cup double and was on the bench for the Champions League victory over Manchester United. This season, he has been on loan at Juventus and he made his mark in Serie A with a goal on his debut against Lazio in September.
Juventus have an option to buy the 23-year-old for £10m, while Arsene Wenger is reportedly keen as he looks to remodel his Arsenal defence.
