Reports from Italian and Russian media suggest that Juventus have agreed a deal for Lokomotiv Moscow midfielder Aleksei Miranchuk.

Italian outlet Sportmediaset report that the Bianconeri have agreed a deal for Miranchuk that will be completed in 2020.

The Russian midfielder scored against Juve in their Champions League fixture last month and the suggestion is that the club were impressed with his performances over the two legs.

Russian newspaper Sport-Express report that while a deal has yet to be agreed, talks between the two sides have indeed taken place.

Following the earlier rumours, the player’s agent Vadim Spinov gave a brief interview, stating: “Lokomotiv gave no permission to the player to leave the club. I am not aware of the existence of agreements between Juventus and Lokomotiv that are serious European clubs and if they are welcome to officially open negotiations.”
