Juventus' sporting director, Fabio Paratici. has confirmed that the club will not pursue the signing of striker, Mauro Icardi from Inter Milan, claiming that the Bianconeri are "very happy" with the strikers that they have.
Icardi is expected to leave the San Siro in the summer, but with Cristiano Ronaldo, Paulo Dybala, Gonzalo Higuain and Mario Mandzukic already present at the club, the club certainly do not need another striker, unless they offload one or two of them.
Paratici believes that the squad is good on all counts and will not look add further attacking players before the transfer window closes.

“It is difficult to improve our squad, but we believe we have succeeded in this transfer window. We’ve strengthened in the positions that we needed to. In attack, Higuain has returned, a great striker. And let’s not forget that we have Cristiano Ronaldo," he said to Sky Italia.
“We are very happy with the strikers we have. We have an international-level striker, we have players where, if you count the goals they have scored in their careers, the figures are really impressive. I think this is more than enough.”
It will be interesting to see whether the club will look to make additions if Dybala and Mandzukic leave as has been mooted.
