Juventus´ interest in Liverpool midfielder Mohamed Sissoko appears to have cooled after Bianconeri president Giovanni Cobolli Gigli revealed the club were unlikely to make any signings in the January transfer window.

The Mali international said on Thursday he was "very close" to joining the Turin giants while Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez admitted on Saturday the Merseysiders were waiting for the "right club and the right offer" for the 22-year-old.

It seems that club will not be Juve, though, with Cobolli Gigli stating on Sunday: "Juventus will not make any acquisitions in the January transfer market."
