Juventus GM Marotta admits 'admiration' for Arsenal star Van Persie

Juventus GM Beppe Marotta has expressed admiration for Arsenal captain Robin van Persie. And Marotta says they intend to sign permanently on-loan AS Roma striker Marco Borriello.

"He 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. I don't feel like naming targets, as that would be unfair for their clubs and the players," he said.

"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 Conte always admired him."
