Juventus coach Andrea Pirlo has been talking about the club’s seach for a striker amid rumors the Turin giants could land Luis Suarez.

The Uruguay international has reportedly been told by new boss Ronald Koeman he’s not in his future plans and was left out of the squad for Saturday’s friendly against Nastic.

Suarez has been heavily linked with a move to Juve, although recent rumors have suggested the deal has stalled and the striker is still considering his next move.

Pirlo offered his thoughts on his club’s hopes of bringing in a replacement for Gonzalo Higuain.

“I need the striker as soon as possible. But the market is long. There will be time to be able to work until October 4.”

Suarez is not the only striker that has been rumored to be of interest to Juve. Edin Dzeko, Alvaro Morata and Arkadiusz Milik are also believed to be targets.
