The 25-year-old keeper is also expected in Turin on Friday for a medical having made close to 200 appearances for Genoa during a seven year spell.

With Emre Can’s deal also seemingly complete, Juventus have turned their attention to the full-back position and are looking at Joao Cancelo as a possible replacement for Stephan Lichtsteiner who recently joined Arsenal.

Di Marzio reports that Cancelo has rejected Wolverhampton Wanderers and would prefer to join a ‘a bigger club’ than Wolves, despite them meeting Valencia’s €40m valuation of the player.
