Juventus admit they are still hoping to sign Arsenal captain Patrick Vieira.
General director Luciano Moggi has been attempting to seal a deal for the 29-year-old, but said: "Arsenal don't want to sell him."
But reports in Italy say it is Arsenal's £14m asking price that is holding up the deal, with Juve offering £5m plus midfielder Stephen Appiah.
Moggi said: "I haven't said that he is too expensive. In any case we will have to meet them again."
The Italian champions have rejected a £30m approach from Chelsea for striker David Trezeguet, 27, and are instead intent on strengthening their squad.
Moggi has identified Vieira, 29, as a potential summer target.
He said recently: "Obviously, they will not let him go cheaply as he is a magnificent, winning midfielder but if Arsenal are willing to do business, we'd buy him tomorrow."
