A report in Bosnia says that Juventus and Lazio have agreed a deal for Senad Lulic, but the Gazzetta dello Sport have their doubts.
The Bianconeri have been linked with a move for the 28-year-old over the past few months and recent weeks have only seen that speculation increase, amid the suggestion of a player-plus-cash deal on the table.
Bosnian website Sport.ba are running the line, though, that a simpler cash deal of €15m for the full-back has now been agreed and that the player will even be in Turin on Monday to undergo medical tests before committing to a four-year contract paying €2m a season.
The Gazzetta dello Sport, however, report that Lulic’s subsequently expected delay in joining up with the rest of his international teammates for their World Cup training preparations sits in contrast with Coach Safet Susic’s request to actually have the Serie A-based members of his squad released early.
The pink paper also reiterates its belief that Lazio and Juve are still in talks over a possible cash-plus-player deal, with the Aquile showing interest in four of the Old Lady’s stock - Fabio Quagliarella, Mauricio Isla, Angelo Ogbonna and Sebastian Giovinco.
