Beppe Marotta has confirmed that Juventus are not interested in Marcelo Brozovic while Juan Cuadrado is is a player ‘who would be welcome.’
“I believe our work is 95 per cent done on the transfer market,” Marotta told reporters at the annual Villar Perosa match.
“We’re looking for a central midfielder. It’s not easy right now to get the right profile, it isn’t easy to improve a team like ours.
“Names? That doesn’t seem right, they’re players from other teams but we’ll definitely be attentive to everything.
“Marcelo Brozovic of Inter? I can say no. On the other hand Cuadrado is a player who would be welcome, he conducted himself very well with us.
“We have to assess Chelsea’s position, if an opportunity arises whereby we can bring him back to us then we’ll be there.
“Simone Zaza? He was involved in a negotiation, in the end both sides made their assessments and it didn’t result in the definition of this sale.
“He remains in our squad, we evaluated our opportunities with him as we’ll do in the coming days if other offers are presented.
“Roberto Pereyra? We’ve had a lot of offers for him, the player liked one of those which was Watford, belonging the Pozzo family who the lad knows well.
“I think this negation will come to a conclusion one way or the other in the next 48 hours.
“ Lemina is a welcome confirmation, high-level teams asked for him, but he’s an important element for us, a great prospect in whom we strongly believe.
“Alongside him I’d like to emphasise the return after recent physical problems of a player like Asamoah who will be very important.”
