The former Liverpool man was outstanding in Sunday's defeat at Palermo and revealed former Juve midfielder Patrick Vieira, now of Inter Milan, convinced him about moving to Italy.

Sissoko said: "I cannot boast his experience. Certainly, Patrick has influenced my decision to come to Turin and gave me a lot of advice. He even did this, along with compliments, just after we took the three points from Inter Milan."

Asked about Amauri's two-goal performance on Sunday, Sissoko added: "He was superb on Sunday. He's a classy attacker. If he comes, he would be a great reinforcement. But my job is to play, not to plan new signings."
