Serie A champions Juventus has agreed to a fee of €40m with Florentina for Federico Bernardeschi, with the Italy international set for a medical this week ahead of his proposed move to Turin.
Juve are relied upon to pay €40million for the Italian forward, whose exit from Stadio Artemio Franchi had seemed likely as speculation over his future strengthened.
The 23-year-old hauled out of a Florentina training camp a week ago, complaining of what the club called “intense gastroenteritis”.
La Viola’s sporting executive Pantaleo Corvino affirmed not long ago that Bernardeschi had turned down their offer of a new, improved contract.
The forward, who scored 11 goals in Serie A last season and had beforehand been linked with Inter, Manchester United and Chelsea, will add to Massimiliano Allegri’s attacking alternative after the arrival Douglas Costa from Bayern Munich on a season long loan.
The Seria A champions have also sealed a permanent deal for Juan Cuadrado and Medhi Benatia after successful loans, while goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny and full-back Mattia De Sciglio have arrived from Arsenal and AC Milan respectively.
