There has been no bids for Arsenal target Vidal nor Lorente - Juve

Juventus chief executive Giuseppe Marotta says the club have not received any bids for Real Madrid
targets Fernando Llorente and Arturo Vidal.
Striker Llorente was forced to play a bit-part role in Turin last season as former Madrid forward Alvaro Morata became a regular in attack, while Vidal has repeatedly been linked to the club in recent seasons.
New Blancos coach Rafa Benitez is reported to be interested in bringing the pair to the Spanish capital but while Llorente could be set for a summer move, Marotta says the club have no interest in allowing Chile international Vidal to leave.
“We have not received any offer for Llorente or Vidal,” Marotta told La Gazzetta dello Sport.
“There are no ongoing negotiations for Vidal, who has been the object of desire for half of Europe."
Llorente has been targeted to bolster Madrid's attacking options after Javier Hernandez returned to Manchester United following his loan spell at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Juventus marched to their fourth straight Serie A title and the Coppa Italia last season before falling to Barcelona in the Champions League final.
Carlos Tevez has since departed for Boca Juniors, but Marotta says he is delighted with the business the club has carried out this summer following the arrivals of Mario Mandzukic, Paulo Dybala, Sami Khedira, Simone Zaza and Daniele Rugani.
“We moved in good time, anticipating the competition, and gained some important players,” Marotta said.
“We lack nothing, the team is complete and ensures another year at a very high level, with some eclectic options that allow the coach a lot of opportunities to rotate the squad.”
