Juventus general director Beppe Marotta has confirmed the club are keen on signing Bayern Munich winger Arjen Robben and Barcelona forward Alexis Sanchez, reports talkSPORT.

The Serie 'A' giants are already making plans for a recruitment drive when the transfer window reopens this summer, as Antonio Conte looks to strengthen his squad in a bid to mount a more serious tilt at the Champions League trophy next season.

"They are two very good players," Marotta told Sky Italia. "Robben is playing with great authority and with great ability in a club that is certainly the best in Europe at this time.

"Meanwhile, Sanchez is at Barcelona and he cost them an extremely important fee."

The Chilean international has struggled to cement his place in the Barcelona team, since arriving at Camp Nou from Udinese in a €26million deal in 2011.

Robben, meanwhile, has been linked with a return to the Premier League, if he becomes one of the first casualties as Pep Guardiola prepares to take over at the Allianz Arena ahead of 2013/14.

"I'm glad that there are these links, but I really do not have anything else to say about them apart from the fact that I admire these two talents," Marotta added.

Sanchez has also attracted interest from the likes of Manchester United, Manchester City and Arsenal, but it's Juventus who now appear to be leading the way for his and Robben's signature.
