Paratici also admits a deal for Roma centre-forward Edin Dzeko isn't a certainty.
He said, “Let's say there isn't a Dzeko situation, it's a striker situation, as Juventus need a centre-forward. We know what we want and are working towards that calmly, there are 15 days to go in the transfer window and we're in no rush.
“At this moment, we are seeking one striker, we have our objectives and will try to pursue them calmly, regardless of the names."
“Suarez can be removed from that list, because the time it takes to get the passport is longer than the transfer deadline or the moment we can hand in the Champions League lists.
“We evaluated the Suarez option when it was proposed to us. He was in the process of getting Italian citizenship, so we evaluated the possibility of registering him in time.
“It is not possible, so he was never really close."
