Juventus GM Beppe Marotta admits they're interested in buying a new striker this month.

Reports in Spain and Italy have strongly linked Atletico Madrid striker Diego Forlan with a move to Juve.

However, Marotta neither confirmed nor denied Juve's interest in the Uruguay international.

He said in Wednesday's press conference: "Each day new rumours emerge with regards to the market.

"We know we have a difficult situation in attack.

"We have lost Quagliarella, our goalscorer, and it's a big absence for us. Our aim is to replace him.

"Have we made an offer to Diego Forlan? I can only say that we will evaluate until the end the best that this market can offer us."
