Juventus have admitted they are interested in signing Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez this summer.
The Italian giants are keen on bolstering their strikeforce after a UEFA Champions League exit at the quarter-final stage, despite winning a second consecutive Scudetto with three games to spare.
Speaking to Sky Sports, Juventus sporting director Beppe Marotta said: "We are not the first to notice his quality and experience. He is a player with a big desire to rebuild his career.
"Nevertheless, he is owned by City and we have made no approach to them. It is obvious that even in the event of an agreement with the player, the club still has an important say."
Marotta also confirmed Juventus' interest in Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain, but admitted a deal for Tevez was more likely.
"I have to say that Higuain is a bit younger and has a higher market value," he added.
"Tevez on the other hand has a year left on his contract so maybe between the two, the Tevez deal is easier."
It is thought Tevez would be open to a move to Italy after a troubled career at the Etihad stadium which saw him return to Argentina at one point without the club's permission after it was claimed by the then boss Roberto Mancini that Tevez refused to come on as a substitute in the Champions League.
