Juventus coach Conte admits Man Utd star Nani, Walcott on radar

Juventus coach Antonio Conte admits he's keen on Premier League talent to turn his squad into title winners. Conte has hit out at critics after their draw with Catania, insisting Juve cannot be turned into champions overnight.

"If you think that Juve, after being in seventh place, can just come back to fight for the title ... I repeat: we have a long way to go to get back to being competitive," he snapped.

Conte revealed Arsenal winger Theo Walcott, Manchester United star Nani and Manchester City's Carlos Tevez are all in his thoughts.

"We could not get Walcott, Nani or Tevez because of the finances involved," he continued. "Clubs in Italy cannot afford such prices, so we focused on young players.

"But if we can work something out with our budget, then maybe there is a possibility."
