Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri has insisted that he is not aware of any interest from his side in signing Mauro Icardi from rivals Inter Milan.

The Argentina international has been stripped of the Inter captaincy and withdrew from the squad to face Rapid Vienna in midweek, which is supposedly down to contract talks between the player and club dragging on.

Rumours from Italy emerged earlier this week suggesting that an agreement may already be in place for Icardi to join Italian champions Juve at the end of the season.

Allegri has tried to steer clear of talk linking the prolific striker with a move to the Allianz Stadium, though, by pointing out that he has little say in who joins the club.

"I don't know anything about the market. I prefer to go to the beach in the summer! The club takes care of the players and makes them available," he told reporters.

"Icardi is a forward who can score goals, but I leave the assessments to [Inter boss Luciano] Spalletti, who coaches him and knows him better."

Inter sporting director Piero Ausilio is hopeful that Icardi will remain at San Siro for the long term, despite the recent uncertainty.

Arsenal 'fast-track director of football search to save their season'

Arsenal have reportedly brought ahead plans to appoint a new director of football in an attempt to salvage their campaign.

The Gunners suffered an embarrassing 1-0 loss to Belarussian minnows BATE in the Europa League in midweek and have struggled for form in the Premier League, leaving their top-four hopes in the balance.

Arsenal were expected to bring in a new transfer chief ahead of next season, with Roma sporting director Monchi and former player Marc Overmars, now employed by Ajax, both in the frame.

According to The Sun, however, the North London outfit have made recruiting a director an urgent priority as they feel it will help to stabilise the club in the short term and allow the successful candidate to plan ahead of a busy off-season.

Talks are said to be planned with Overmars and Monchi in the coming weeks and Arsenal are hopeful of having someone in place before the transfer window reopens for business.

Sven Mislintat was tasked with lining up new signings, but the head of recruitment left the club earlier this month, while chief-executive Ivan Gazidis has also moved to AC Milan.
