Juventus GM Beppe Marotta insists they won't spend big this month.

Juve have been linked with Chelsea legend Didier Drogba, now of Shanghai Shenhua.

“The transfer window will close without any major signings,” Marotta told Sky Sport Italia. “The January market is not offering important names for Juventus.

“We are looking around, evaluating, but in the meantime we want to recover those players who are absent with injury or participating at the African Cup of Nations.

“We’re missing important elements like Claudio Marchisio, Giorgio Chiellini, Kwadwo Asamoah and Simone Pepe, while Mirko Vucinic is not playing continuously because of fitness issues.”
