Former Inter Milan and Italy star Salvatore Bagni has backed Juventus' pursuit of Premier League stars Robin van Persie and Luis Suarez.

It was reported over the weekend that Juve have informed Arsenal contract rebel Van Persie that they intend to also sign Liverpool's Suarez.

"I think Luis Suarez and van Persie (are ideal for Juve). They have different characteristics but they are players of great movement, the Dutch can be deployed as a second striker.

"The Uruguayan striker is a No1, they would both fit comfortably with (the plans of) Antonio Conte," Bagni told TMW.

"They say Juve are seeking a great player, but they already have reinforced well. Mauricio Isla and Kwadwo Asamoah are hard workers and Lucio adds balance to the defence."
