The attacker's representative has offered his client to the Serie A champions, but the Old Lady prefer the likes of Heerenveen striker Bas DostEXCLUSIVE
Tullio Tinto, the agent of Inter striker Giampaolo Pazzini, offered his client to Juventus during a meeting with general director Giuseppe Marotta back in April, Goal.com has learned.
The attacker appears to be surplus to requirements at the Nerazzurri after a disappointing 2011-12 campaign, and Inter are ready to cash in on Pazzini if a good offer comes in.
Marotta previously worked together with the player at Sampdoria, and is believed to be a keen admirer of the 27-year-old.
Nevertheless, Juve have no intention of making a move for the striker at this point as they prefer other options for the position.
Napoli star Edinson Cavani remains the Old Lady's top priority this summer, but they have also set their sights on Heerenveen striker Bas Dost.
The 23-year-old was crowned the Eredivisie's top-scorer this term with 32 goals in 34 appearances, and is continually being linked with a move to a bigger club.
Dost is believed to be close to joining Wolfsburg, but the Turin club have now joined the race for the attacker's services, and are set to meet with the player's representative Henk Nienhuis in the upcoming weeks.
Meanwhile, Genoa attacker Mattia Destro is another candidate to strengthen Juve's attack. The striker impressed on loan at Siena in the 2011-12 campaign, and has also attracted the interest of Inter.
Nevertheless, Juve have moved into pole position to secure the services of the 21-year-old after a fruitful meeting with Genoa.
