Juventus sporting director Fabio Paratici confirmed Barcelona star Luis Suarez will not be joining the Serie A champions, while insisting the club are not only eyeing Roma striker Edin Dzeko.

Reportedly told he can leave embattled LaLiga giants Barca, veteran forward Suarez had been heavily linked with Cristiano Ronaldo's Juve following Gonzalo Higuain's move to David Beckham's Inter Miami in MLS.

Pirlo scotches prospect of Suarez joining Ronaldo at Juventus

  Pirlo scotches prospect of Suarez joining Ronaldo at Juventus Andrea Pirlo was looking at a move for Barcelona striker Luis Suarez, but the new Juventus coach is prepared to turn to other targets.Although there is much about Suarez that appeals to Juventus, the process of securing an Italian passport for a player who turns 34 in January is a complication that Pirlo addressed on Saturday.

Paratici says 34-year-old Dzeko is not the only option they are considering and says they will not rush to make a signing . “Let’ s say there isn’t a Dzeko situation, it’ s a striker situation, as Juventus need a centre-forward. Right now we are only thinking of one striker, not two," he said.

Paratici says 34-year-old Dzeko is not the only option they are considering and says they will not rush to make a signing . “Let’ s say there isn’t a Dzeko situation, it’ s a striker situation, as Juventus need a centre-forward. Right now we are only thinking of one striker, not two," he said.

But a delay in securing an Italian passport for the 33-year-old Uruguay international has scuppered those plans, Paratici confirmed prior to Sunday's season-opening 3-0 win over Sampdoria.

"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," said Paratici, whose Juve have already filled their non-European quota.

"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."

While Suarez is off the list, Juve – led by rookie head coach Andrea Pirlo – continue to be linked with Roma's Dzeko.

Barcelona sell Luis Suarez to Atletico

  Barcelona sell Luis Suarez to Atletico After spending six prolific years with Barcelona, Luis Suarez has left Camp Nou to join LaLiga rivals Atletico Madrid.The 33-year-old was in the final year of his deal at Camp Nou and has faced an uncertain future since the end of last season.

Juventus director Fabio Paratici revealed the club had removed Suarez from their wishlist and would look elsewhere, with Roma Paratici told Sky Sport: “ Suarez can be removed from that list, because the time it takes to Atletico Madrid have joined Ajax - Suarez ' s former club - in the race to sign him.

Juventus can't sign Suarez because he won't obtain his Italian passport in time, Paratici reveals. The official adds that Luis was never 'close' to joining the Bianconeri. Meanwhile, Atletico are working on signing the striker if Barca let him leave for free. "Luis Suarez is not on our list.

Dzeko's proposed move to Juve is reportedly tied to Roma signing Napoli forward Arkadiusz Milik as a replacement in the Italian capital.

Amid uncertainty over this future, Dzeko was an unused substitute in Roma's goalless draw at Hellas Verona on Saturday.

"Let's say there isn't a Dzeko situation, it's a striker situation, as Juventus need a centre-forward," Paratici said as Juve reportedly try to re-sign Moise Kean from Everton. "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.

"There are other situations, not just Dzeko. We know what we want. We're working for a striker who can work with Cristiano Ronaldo and Paulo Dybala.

"At this moment, we are seeking one striker, we have our objectives and will try to pursue them calmly, regardless of the names."
