Juventus are confident of keeping Andrea Pirlo out of the clutches of Premier League clubs despite reported interest from Tottenham, reports talkSPORT.

Pirlo has been linked with a host of Premier League clubs including Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea after it was revealed he may be available for free when his contract expires next summer.

However, it was Tottenham who were thought to be leading the chase for Pirlo as Andres Villas-Boas looks to add experience to his midfield.

Former Chelsea manager Gianluca Vialli revealed that Tottenham were in contact with the midfield architect over a potential move to White Hart Lane next summer.

"I’ve heard rumours from England that there has been contact between Pirlo and Tottenham for next season," Vialli told Sky Sport Italia.

The Italian's stature within the Juventus squad is falling and was visibly frustrated after being subbed against Hellas Verona the other week. 

Pirlo walked straight down the tunnel after the game and Antonio Conte was forced to reprimand him in public as a result.

Despite his obvious discontent, talkSPORT is reporting that Juventus remain confident that the 34-year-old will reject the attraction of English football in favour of staying in Turin.

Pirlo is yet to commit his future to the club but Juventus are willing to wait to tie up a new short-term deal for the standout star of Euro 2012.
