A number of Italian news outlets are reporting that Juventus are on the verge of completing a deal for Paulo Dybala.

The 21-year-old striker has been linked with clubs around Europe and a sale has looked certain for a while now. The Argentine only has 12 months left on his existing contract with Palermo and has elected not to extend beyond 2016.

Further reports in the Italian press today suggest Rosanero President Maurizio Zamparini has instructed Coach Beppe Iachini not to play Dybala, fuelling speculation that a deal is all but completed.

Sky Sport Italia are reporting that a transfer between the two clubs will be completed following Juve’s semi-final second leg against Real Madrid next week. Mediaset go one better by suggesting the deal will include €25m up front for Dybala, with another €5m in bonuses. The remainder of the deal will include full-ownership of two co-owned youngsters, Edoardo Goldaniga and Eric Lanini, bringing the total value close to €30m.

Mediaset claim Juventus have already agreed personal terms with the player on a five-year deal worth €2m per season. The news outlet says a meeting between Juve directors Fabio Paratici and Giuseppe Marotta took place at the home of Zamparini to finalise the deal.
