Juve recently pipped Milan to the Serie A title and have now revealed a shortlist of strikers they would like to sign which includes the name of Robin van Persie.
The Arsenal captain is arguably the hottest property in Europe at the moment after an amazing season which has seen the Gunners forward score 30 Premier League goals.
“Van Persie is a great player,” Juventus general director Giuseppe Marotta said to www.calciomercato.com.
“He is a complete player and would be useful to any team. But he still has one year left in his contract with Arsenal.
“We will try to put the icing on the cake this summer but the important thing is that the mix is good.
“Van Persie, Suarez or Higuain? They are three important players,” Marotta said.
“In fantasy football we could have the three of them playing in the same line-up but in reality, it is different.
“If one of them arrives (here) is not because he will be the less talented as other things have to be taken into account, such as the financial aspect.
“Moreover, if (Real Madrid coach Jose) Mourinho does not want to sell Higuain it will be impossible for us to get him and we also have to take that into consideration.”
