Udinese President Giampaolo Pozzo confirmed they are “in talks” with Juventus over Roberto Pereyra.
The 23-year-old Argentine can play as an attacking right winger, in a more central role or as a support striker.
“The transfer market opens and with it the little games we play,” Pozzo told Sky Sport Italia.
“I cannot talk about real and proper negotiations. There have been some talks with the Bianconeri directors, nothing more.”
Pozzo was also asked about the status of Antonio Candreva and Juan Cuadrado, who are co-owned with other clubs.
Lazio would like to buy Candreva outright and Fiorentina seeking the final 50 per cent of Cuadrado, but the Colombian is also sought after by top clubs like Bayern Munich and Barcelona.
“It is too early to talk about their future. Unfortunately in football there is the bad habit of people always reaching the last minute to make decisions.
“It’s not just up to us, but these are two players who are not focused on returning to Udinese, so we are waiting to see what happens.”
