After tying up a second consecutive Scudetto title, Juventus have shown that they're keen to maintain a championship-worthy squad, already conducting a wealth of summer transfer business.
However, with over a month of the summer window left to go, one can bet the Turin titans will still have a few deals to finalise, many of which have been speculated upon in recent days.
Whether it's incoming or outbound, read on to find the latest bits of transfer information around the Old Lady, updated throughout the week as new reports come through.
Upon his arrival from Udinese last summer, big things were expected of Mauricio Isla, just on the back of a thriving season with his former club and widely regarded as one of the most versatile talents in Europe.
However, a crippling knee injury would limit the Chilean international to just eight Serie A starts for Juve and allow others to assert their impact on the champions' lineup.
Inter have risen as very possible suitors for the South American and were thought to be closing in on a deal for his services, but the Nerrazurri were recently reported by Gazzetta dello Sport (h/t Sky Sports) to have been rejected in their latest approach.
Furthermore, Juve director Giuseppe Marotta was reported speaking on the matter, saying:
Mauricio has been the subject of interest from Inter. We sat around a table to look at the proposal from both a financial and technical point of view. At this time, in agreement with the coach, we won't be putting the player on the market. Isla remains our player in every way.
With six weeks still left in the window, the Milan outfit may yet return for another bid, higher than the offer they're said to have already sent in Juve's direction.
Italian journalist Tancredi Palmeri announced on Twitter that the deal had supposedly broken down as a result of Isla's former club, Udinese, intervening so that they could receive their cut for the player as a result of his co-ownership.
As a result of the player's fine 2012-13 season, Alessandro Diamanti has earned himself not only a more prominent place in Cesare Prandelli's Italy, but also a wealth of speculation linking him with a move to Juventus.
However, it's been suggested that such a deal will not come to pass this summer at least, with the winger very much a part of what Bologna have planned in the near future.
According to Sky Sport Italia (h/t Football-Italia), Bologna president Albano Guaraldi was quoted as saying:
I can tell you that Diamanti is not for sale.
He is the captain of Bologna, he doesn’t want to leave us and we have no desire to rid ourselves of him in the future.
With seven goals and 11 assists for his club last term, Diamanti stuck out as one of Serie A's premier fantasistas but would only be a fairly short-term option for Juve at the age of 30.
Regardless, Guaraldi's stance on his player seems staunch at this point, irrespective of how useful Antonio Conte may see him.
Clearly hoping to upgrade what was obviously the Canaries' weakest area last season, Norwich City boss Chris Hughton is reportedly hoping to lure Juventus forward Fabio Quagliarella to Carrow Road this summer.
According to this report by Danny Griffiths of the Metro, Hughton—who's currently with his side on their tour of the United States—views the Italian as one of his better options heading into the new season, with the manager noting:
Yes, I have seen the reports that I was in Italy. There are players that we would have an interest in bringing to the club but wanting to bring someone here and actually getting them here is two different things.
The areas that we felt we needed to improve were the offensive areas. We brought Ricky in but on the other side of it Simeon [Jackson] and Holty [Grant Holt] have departed so, yes, the forward area is one we are looking to do something.
Ricky van Wolfswinkel remains Hughton's marquee summer signing, arriving from Sporting Lisbon for a fee of around £9 million, but it seems there's still money to be spent at the club.
UPDATE (Friday, July 26)
Coming closer to the end of July, Norwich City are no longer the only Premier League side looking to sign Quagliarella, it seems, after West Ham also registered interest in the Italian's signature.
According to Sky Sport Italia (h/t Yahoo!), the East London side are looking to sign the 30-year-old as Juve seek to shift one of their six strikers.
After signing Carlos Tevez and Fernando Llorente this summer, one can see how such a situation would make it difficult to appease all, and Quagliarella may be looked upon as available as a result.
Having spent a fruitful time alongside one another at AC Milan, Carlo Ancelotti is looking to link back up with former favourite Andrea Pirlo, after the midfielder underwent a rebirth with Juventus these past two years.
The new Real Madrid coach is alleged by Tuttosport (h/t Football-Espana) as being "desperate" to reunite with the Italian maestro, who was responsible for a large portion of his success at the San Siro.
Since coming to the Bianconeri as a free transfer two summers ago, Pirlo has reverted back to his playing best and is understood to be enjoying life in Turin.
That being said, it's still unknown as to whether the 34-year-old would leave the Italian giants, having won back-to-back Scudetto honours since arriving at the club.
With Carlos Tevez and Fernando Llorente arriving at the club this summer, one might understand how the existing strike force at the Juventus Stadium may feel uneasy about their positions within the squad.
Mirko Vucinic would fall into that category and, according to Gazzetta dello Sport (h/t Metro), Antonio Conte can see how it would be difficult to appease all the attackers now at the club.
The Italian publication quote Conte as saying that it would be "difficult to see a Juve with Vucinic, Tevez and Llorente on the field at the same time."
The Express' Ben Jefferson supports the notion that this would put Manchester United on alert, a club who have been linked with the Montenegrin international in the past, and could soon be looking to replace Wayne Rooney.

Despite being widely looked upon as one of the most promising stars in the Italian national team, Marco Verratti has never actually made an appearance in the country's top domestic league.
However, that could be set to change this summer after both Juventus and Napoli showed their interest in signing the youngster, currently of Paris Saint-Germain.
The player's agent, Donato Di Campli, was recently reported by Gazzetta.it (h/t Football Italia) as saying: "We are asking for an improved salary because Fiorentina are chasing him and Juventus are interested too."
Gazzetta dello Sport back up the comments and have since been reported by Sky Sports as alleging that PSG are in contract talks with the 20-year-old, seemingly in a bid to improve Verratti's wages and fend off Serie A interest.
We are still a long way from an agreement. The talks must continue, I'm not too confident or optimistic at the moment. Yet Marco will stay at Paris Saint-Germain because he has a four-year contract - that is a fact.
However, there are alternatives out there and just this morning a monstrous offer arrived from (Napoli president Aurelio) Di Laurentiis. Marco wants to be recognised as the great player he is, but what was said (in negotiations) this morning wasn't good, and so we will speak again next week.
At this stage, it would appear clear that Di Campli is attempting to engineer a new, more lucrative contract for his client, but to know that Juventus and Napoli are two of the parties allegedly interested only speaks volumes of Verratti's talents.

One of the more impressive components in Manchester United's pre-season tour this year has been youngster and academy product, Adnan Januzaj.
However, as the negative side of that particular double-edged sword, a player impressing his own club is also bound to impress others.
As a result, Ian Ladyman of the Daily Mail has supported the notion that Juventus and Barcelona now have their sights set on the Belgian forward, who is hoping to extend his stay at Old Trafford.
In recent matches, Januzaj has played mostly as an attacking midfielder behind the operating striker, but also showed some promise when pulled out wide.

Having made just 10 Serie A starts for the club last season, one might find it easy to understand why Alessandro Matri could be considered surplus to requirements in Turin this summer.
Jones also states that the player would be "keen on a Premier league move," giving the Merseyside outfits perhaps more reason to be upbeat about their prospective chances.
Everton have already lured Arouna Kone from Roberto Martinez's former club, Wigan, whereas Liverpool have taken Iago Aspas from Celta Vigo.
However, the Reds could be set for greater need in a replacement striker, depending on how Luis Suarez's transfer saga unfolds.

Not that it makes much of a difference at this point, but Stevan Jovetic's move to Manchester City may offend Juventus fans that much more after it was revealed by the forward that he rejected an approach from the club.
The Citizen striker admitted this week that the Old Lady had shown interest in his services, but that it was his choice to become part of Manuel Pellegrini's project in England.
Per Gazzetta dello Sport (h/t Sky Sports), the Montenegrin forward also spoke of his affection for Fiorentina and his hopes for them to do "great things" in the future:
Juventus looked at me, they were interested. But it was my decision, and I chose Man City.
To my family Della Valle I will be bounded always a deep affection. Best wishes and good luck for the new season, you'll do really good things.
Either way Jovetic moved, he will have been competing for a place in a star-studded forward lineup, but only time will tell which one would have been the correct choice.
