Juventus defender Leonardo Bonucci has shrugged off coach Antonio Conte's pursuit of a defensive signing in January.

Juve are set to sign a centre-back after Christmas given that their options for the campaign are just Giorgio Chiellini, Andrea Barzagli, Bonucci and Frederik Sorensen.

"I think the arrival of a fourth defender is a normal thing," he commented to Juventus Channel.

"With all due respect to Sorensen, he's a young guy and it is right that he goes and plays somewhere else."
