Report: Juve close to sealing trio

It is reported that Juventus are moving closer to completing a triple signing of Alvaro Morata, Patrice Evra and Juan Iturbe.

It is said that Old Lady officials are currently in Madrid for talks over the Spanish forward, with the club prepared to raise their bid for the player to €18m.

According to Tuttomercatoweb.com, Turin is Morata’s preferred destination and he would turn down offers from Monaco and Wolfsburg, among others, to join the Bianconeri.

With regards to Evra, it was reported earlier today that the Manchester United full-back had already agreed personal terms with the Serie A champions. However, it is said a fee for the player is still to be agreed, with the Red Devils apparently holding out for €2m.

Attempts to bring in Iturbe from Verona have long since been ongoing, but it is believed Juve still hold the advantage. With Milan seemingly out of contention to secure the Argentine’s signature, the Old Lady’s main rival suitors now appear to be Atletico Madrid and Roma.

However, Juve Coach Antonio Conte has reportedly held personal talks with Iturbe and the club remain confident of landing their target.
