Juventus director Giuseppe Marotta says the Serie A champions are no longer interested in signing Fiorentina striker Stevan Jovetic.
Montenegro international Jovetic has been linked with the Turin giants as well as Premier League champions Manchester City.
“We spoke with Fiorentina president (Mario) Cognigni and sporting director (Daniele) Prade about Jovetic. However, we are no longer interested in signing him now,” Marotta said.
Marotta went on to discuss his side’s interest in Napoli star Edinson Cavani, and insisted that Juve did not attempt to sign the Uruguay international during the close-season transfer window.
“We have not even tried to sign Cavani. We knew that Napoli had no intention to sell him,” he said.
Cavani signed a new contract with Napoli earlier this year that will keep him at the club until June 2017.
