No Juventus move for Lopez

Created on 27 Jan., 2013 10:15 AM GMT

Juventus director Giuseppe Marotta says Lyon have priced Juventus out of a move for striker Lisandro Lopez.

The Argentine forward had been linked with a switch to the reigning Serie A champions as Juve look to add to their attacking options, with Nicolas Anelka set to join in the coming days.

But Marotta ruled out any chance of Lisandro touching down in Turin imminently due to Lyon's excessive valuation of the 29-year-old.

"I do not think Lisandro Lopez will join," Marotta told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

"The position of the club is, as a result, frozen. Lisandro is a good player, but Lyon requested a transfer at a cost that does not appeal to us.

"We must stay cool and rational in this kind of market."

Juve have also secured Fernando Llorente on a Bosman free transfer, but the striker must see out the remainder of the season with Athletic Bilbao.
