Emanuele Giaccherini's agent does not believe the Italian international will be sold by Juventus, amid claims that Sunderland have lodged an offer for his services.

It has been reported in Italy and England that the Black Cats have turned their attentions to the 28-year-old attacking midfielder and submitted a bid of €10million (£8.6million).

However, his agent does not believe that Juventus are looking to sell.

"Myself and my partner have not called anyone, and also [Juventus director general Giuseppe] Marotta has made it very clear on the future of Giaccherini," he told Furio Valcareggi IlSussidiario.net.

"And he gets on well with Antonio Conte, who is a great coach and he has no intention of selling him - he is not for sale."

Asked if the player was looking for a move, he added: "Absolutely not, he is fine at Juventus.

"He has the confidence of everyone and still wants to win so much. I believe Juventus are in a strong shape to win a third consecutive title."
