Juventus GM Beppe Marotta says they're working hard to find a new striker signing.

Marotta was asked about their interest in signing Arsenal's Robin Van Persie or Fiorentina's Stevan Jovetic.

"The top player we are looking for is not only a name with an important price-tag attached. What we mean by top player is someone who can improve our quality level.

"Van Persie is an excellent player and Arsenal have no intention of losing him. It is not possible to negotiate for a player if the club is not open to talks.

"As for Jovetic, it's only right that Fiorentina ruled he is off the market. We never even tried to get close to him."
