Juventus director general Beppe Marotta has said Mirko Vucinic and Fabio Quagliarella would be allowed to leave Turin if they request a move.

The strikers have found themselves on the fringes of the first team with the Serie A champions this season, and Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with both players while, more recently, there have been claims Arsenal are closing in on 30-year-old Montenegro international Vucinic.

Marotta has now indicated that Juve would be willing to consider offers if they seek a move.

“We have always said that the players decide their own fate,” he told Sky Sport Italia. “If one of them were to come to us and say: ‘I want to leave because I’m not getting enough chances,’ we would try to grant their request.

“Obviously that would depend on there being offers for them because, if the offers aren't there, you can't grant their wish.”

Arsene Wenger told the media on Saturday that claims Vucinic was close to a move to the Emirates Stadium were wide of the mark.

“We are looking at potential possibilities for us to get someone in, but we are not especially in for Vucinic,” Wenger said. “Some people have visual capacities that I don't have.

“We are not on any special case. I would love to announce something that would excite you and me, but I don't have the possibility to do it.”
