Juve chief reveals admiration for RVP

Juventus director Beppe Marotta has expressed his admiration for Arsenal skipper Robin van Persie, but refused to comment on reports the recently-crowned Serie A champions are targeting the Dutchman for the upcoming transfer window.

Van Persie is off contract with the Gunners next summer with a number of Europe's top clubs, including Juventus, reportedly circling. Marotta remained non-committal on specific transfer targets, insisting the club's pursuit of a big-name striker will hinge on negotions with Marco Borriello, who is on loan from Roma.

"[Van Persie] is among the most complete players around, but he still has a year on his contract with Arsenal and so I can only express an opinion on his qualities," Marotta told Sky Sport Italia. "I don't feel like naming targets, as that would be unfair for their clubs and the players.

"Our option on buying Borriello from Roma expires on June 20, so we have time to discuss things. He had some initial difficulties, but recently helped us a great deal and [Juventus coach Antonio] Conte always admired him."

Meanwhile, the future of Eljero Elia remains unclear after he stated his desire to leave Juventus on Tuesday as the Dutchman seeks more game time following his move from Hamburg last year. However, Marotta hinted that the club hope to keep hold of Elia next campaign.

"It may seem strange, but a year to settle in was important for Elia," said Marotta. "Serie A is different to the Bundesliga and he understood it's another type of approach.

"Clearly he needs to play consistently and we are happy to help our players when they ask for that, but there won't be any meetings until after the Coppa Italia final [on May 20]."
