Juventus will reportedly hold a meeting with Torino in the coming 24 hours to conclude a deal for Angelo Ogbonna.
The Turin rivals have been in talks in recent weeks over the permanent transfer of the €12m-rated centre-back.
Negotiations have stalled in recent days over Juve’s reported determination to only pay €8m, by trying to include Ciro Immobile in the deal, either through co-ownership or a loan move.
With it now believed that the young striker will be unlocked from Genoa’s 50 per cent share in his playing rights, Sky Sport Italia report that a deal to send him to Torino is close and that Ogbonna’s move the other way is also therefore close.
It is reported that Juve could close negotiations with Torino over the move by tonight or tomorrow.
