With Juventus in the market for a striker this summer, numerous sources have gone wild with rumors and speculation as to who the Italian giants might sign.
Leading the list of potential newcomers has usually been Robin van Persie of Arsenal, who, as we know, publicly stated his desire to leave the club weeks ago and now awaits a transfer.
But a player as good as van Persie will have many prestigious suitors who can offer him the money that he wants. It is entirely possible that, even if negotiations are at an advanced stage, Manchester City or Manchester United will swoop in and make a last-second move.
Juve will have to consider numerous backup options if their primary target doesn't work out. Here are a few of the great players they should consider.
