Juventus President Andrea Agnelli has admitted that the time has arrived for the club to sign a top player.
The Old Lady went in search of a big name signing last summer, but they were foiled in their attempts to buy Sergio Aguero from Atletico Madrid and then Villarreal’s Giuseppe Rossi.
“Winning the Champions League is an objective for Juventus next season and we are now ready to net a top player,” Agnelli told La Stampa after his club’s Scudetto success.
“Signing a big name player two years ago would have been a waste of time. It would have been like buying a plasma TV when you really needed to build a house first.
“Now we just have to make some evaluations on who to target – to consider whether a player is a good lad or one who has the spirit of a rebel.”
The Old Lady are hoping to sign a notable centre-forward and they’ve been paired with Real Madrid’s Gonzalo Higuain, Arsenal’s Robin Van Persie and Liverpool’s Luis Suarez amongst others.
