Juventus close to signing Tomas Rincon

December 28, 2016 - 8:48 am

Juventus are on the verge of completing a deal for Genoa midfielder Tomas Rincon.

Multiple sources in Italy report that a deal has been agreed between the two clubs which will see the Venezuelan defensive midfielder join the Bianconeri.

La Stampa, Gazzetta Dello Sport and Sky Sport Italia suggest that Rincon will initially join Juve on a 6-month loan worth €2m, with the Bianconeri retaining an option to sign the player permanently for a further €7m.

Juve are believed to be in the hunt for 2 midfielders and it’s suggested by some sources that a deal for Rincon would not exclude the arrival of Axel Witsel.

La Stampa report that Juventus are standing firm with their take-it-or-leave-it offer of €6m to sign the Belgian midfielder in January. If a deal fails to materialise, Juve will sign the player for free next summer.

    It appears to be true as it seems he have medicals today. Only a replacement to lemina who will leave for the african cup.

    Worst decision it would be ever. I’d want Juve to beat Porto in UEFA Champions League round-16 and then into semis.
