'Beat Juve first, join them later'

Catania's Maxi Lopez has admitted that he'd like to join Juventus, but insists he's focused on beating the Old Lady this Sunday.

The Argentine has been talked about as a possible January transfer target for the Bianconeri given Amauri's problems in Turin.

Although he admits that he'd love to move to a big club, his priority is getting three points this weekend.

"It's just an important game for me," he told La Gazzetta dello Sport. "You just have to look at the table and Juventus' history to recognise that.

"If we can beat them then I'll be happy.

"The transfer rumours? They make me happy. I feel honoured when I see that big clubs are interested in me.

"I hope to one day play for a top level side and Juventus are one of those.

"I just hope to remain in this country which has adopted me, making me feel at home. I find many similarities between Argentina and Italy, footballing and non."
