Juventus CEO Maurizio Arrivabene has told supporters “they can forget” about the prospect of making big-money signings during the January transfer window, insisting the club must focus on stability.

The Bianconeri announced an increase in capital earlier this week, with 91.75 per cent of the overall shares subscribed for approximately €366.9million.

Juve been heavily linked with a move striker next month, with Dusan Vlahovic, Mauro Icardi and Anthony Martial touted as potential targets.

But Arrivabene explained that player recruitment is not the club’s primary focus in the near future.

The CEO told DAZN: “I think it is important to clarify a few things, which is that the increase in capital showed the shareholders have faith in the club’s plans to re-launch and resolve our issues.

“However, I want to make it very clear that this is to bring stability to the club accounts. It is absolutely not a financial operation, so we can make some big splash on the transfer market.

“If anyone is expecting some big coups in January, they can forget it. 

“This club has been hit hard by two years of COVID, and we are focused on re-launching, reflecting and evaluating, so we can then do what the economic situation allows us to do.”
