'Juve agree Giaccherini terms'

Juventus and Cesena have agreed terms over the transfer of Emanuele Giaccherini, reports are suggesting.

It is being claimed that the Turin giants will hand over €3m to Cesena for a 50 per cent share in the player.

Given that the attacking wide player was only tied to Cesena until June 2012, he'll also extend his contract at the Stadio Manuzzi.

As part of the move, Jorge Martinez will join Cesena from Juventus on a free loan. The Bianconeri will pay the Uruguayan's €1.5m a year salary.

Giaccherini, 26-years-old, will be handed a four-year contract by the Turin giants,

The former Forli and Pavia man scored seven goals in 33 Serie A games last term. He had never previously appeared in the Italian top flight.

Italian reports are claiming that the switch is official, but neither Juventus nor Cesena have yet to comment.
