Iaquinta 'important' for Juve

The representative of Vincenzo Iaquinta has ruled out the possibility of a Juventus exit for his client.

There have been whispers that the 2006 World Cup winner could be offered to Roma as part of a deal for Mirko Vucinic.

"Iaquinta to Roma in exchange for Vucinic is just an illusion," Andrea D'Amico told calciomercato.com on Tuesday.

"He missed large parts of the season to injury, but when he was in good shape he was hardly ever on the bench, he played.

"Iaquinta is a champion who needs to be recovered. I have faith in the fact that he is still an important player for Juventus."

The former Udinese forward, signed by the Turin giants in 2007 for €11m, played just 19 Serie A games this term, scoring four goals.

Iaquinta has also been linked with moves to Zenit and Tottenham in recent times.
