Giuseppe Marotta says Juventus will be looking to bring in more players in January, with a move for Fernando Llorente still possible.
Juve spent the off-season trying to land the signature of a top-class centre-forward but were thwarted in their attempts to sign Robin van Persie, Stevan Jovetic and Spain international Llorente.
The Italian champions did manage to sign Danish striker Nicklas Bendtner on loan from Arsenal but director general Marotta is still hoping to further bolster their attack.
“We are continuing to monitor interesting players and we will decide whether to make any moves in January,” he told reporters.
“We have looked for players with a certain profile and Jovetic fits that, but he is a Fiorentina player and the Viola will decide his future. Llorente? We are continuing to work.
“The first judgements from Conte on Bendtner are very positive. He is a youngster who wants to do well.”
However, Marotta dismissed reports the Turin side were interested in signing Lazio centre-back Modibo Diakite, after the Senegalese star refused to sign a new contract at Stadio Olimpico.
“There are usually a lot of bombastic headlines about us and we get linked with moves that I can categorically deny,” he said.
“For example, we have not talked to Diakite. He is a Lazio player and will not be coming to Juventus.”
Juve coach Antonio Conte is serving a 10-month matchday ban for failing to report match-fixing activities during his time at Siena, but Marotta hopes an appeal will be successful.
“We are very optimistic about the … hearing,” he said.
