Edin Dzeko is set to join Juventus in the coming days after the club reached an agreement with Roma and the player.
The Bianconeri have been frantically looking for a striker following Gonzalo Higuain’s move to MLS to join Inter Miami last week.
Dzeko and Luis Suarez were the most likely candidates with new coach Andrea Pirlo reportedly preferring a move for the Bosnian international.
Sky Sport Italia’s Gianluca di Marzio now confirms (see below) that a deal is in place between Juve and Roma and terms have been agreed with Dzeko with club medical tests expected in the coming days.
