    Juventus' rather busy summer transfer window might not be over just yet. New manager Massimiliano Allegri could look to add a few more pieces to start his tenure with the Bianconeri.

    Juventus have so far brought in a few notable players including Alvaro Morata, Patrice Evra, Romulo and Roberto Pereyra. These new signings will undoubtedly improve the depth chart as the Italian champions compete in three competitions next season.

    However, when it comes to transfers, the biggest news concerns La Vecchia Signora's attempts to hold on to midfield stars Arturo Vidal and Paul Pogba.

    Here are the latest transfer rumors surrounding Juventus. 

Juve Offer Inter a Deal

    According to reports from Il Corriere dello Sport (via Football Italia), Juventus have offered Sebastian Giovinco and cash to Inter for midfielder Fredy Guarin.

    The Colombian international could be a replacement for Arturo Vidal as he's a dynamic playmaker with an incredible shot from long distance.

Luisao Wants to Join Juventus

    Benfica central defender Luisao has asked his Benfica to accept Juventus' offer for him. The reports come from reputable Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio (via Football Italia).

    The 33-year-old Brazilian would essentially be used for depth at the back if the Bianconeri cannot sign Kostas Manolas from Olympiakos.

    Luisao wouldn't realistically start for Juventus, but could be a decent experienced option to bring in occasionally considering the club plays in three different competition.

    According to Metro, a fan was able to get Juventus midfielder Arturo Vidal to sign his Manchester United top.

    The Chilean international has been rumored to make a switch to England for quite some time, but a deal hasn't yet materialized.

    So far, it looks like only an incredibly lavish offer will do to pry the dynamic box-to-box midfielder away from Turin.

Leeds Give Up on Sorensen

    According to Sky Sport Italia (via Football Italia), English second division side Leeds United have given up on signing young Juventus backup defender Frederik Sorensen.

    Sorensen has also been linked to Genoa. He is a versatile defender capable of playing as a center-back or out wide on the flanks.

    It remains unclear whether or not the Danish defender fits into the plans of new head coach Massimiliano Allegri if he does stay in Turin. 

Manolas or Nastasic?

    For several weeks, ongoing rumors linking Juventus with both Kostas Manolas and Matija Nastasic have made the front pages.

    Even though nothing has been made official, reports from Goal.com state that the club is still interested in either one of these central defenders.

    Pictured above, Manolas had an impressive campaign with the Greek national team at the World Cup. On top of that, the young defender did well in the Champions League with Olympiakos last season.

    The idea is that out-of-favor Angelo Ogbonna would leave this month if either came, as the Italian defender hasn't impressed after securing a deal from cross-city rivals Torino last year.
