Milos Krasic is in search of a new club because Juventus coach Antonio Conte "doesn't want him anymore", according to the Serbia winger's agent.

Krasic, 27, has been out of favour under Conte this season and is no longer a first-team regular in Turin, with Pepe and Mirko Vucinic preferred on the flanks.

With the former CSKA Moscow midfielder unhappy about regularly being a substitute, agent Dejan Joksimovic feels it will be time for his client to move on in January.

"Conte doesn't want him anymore," Joksimovic was quoted as saying in the Serbian media. "Milos has to play so the best thing we can do for him now is to find a new club.

"Chelsea and Manchester City made bids for him in the summer, but Juve turned them down. You never know what will happen, but both of those clubs have yet to adequately fill the position of right winger in their starting line-ups.

"Juventus must act quickly because while he is not playing, Krasic's price in the market is dropping day after day. Krasic must play and in one month's time we should have a clearer picture. We will see how the story develops from now until Christmas."

Krasic has also been linked with Borussia Dortmund, but Jokismovic insisted the winger "is bigger" than the reigning German champions.

"I think Krasic is a bit bigger than Borussia at the moment," he said. "These are stories without any substance."

Krasic joined the Bianconeri for €15.5 million in 2010, scoring six goals in 33 games in his debut campaign.
