Estigarribia on his way to Juve

Juventus have made a surprise move for Paraguay winger Marcelo Alejandro Estigarribia. "I'll sign for a Serie A club."

Just hours after agreeing a deal with Cesena for Emanuele Giaccherini, it seems that the Old Lady have lined up their second left-midfielder for boss Antonio Conte.

"I'll be playing in Italy," stated the 23-year-old. "I've been asked to not name the club before everything has been agreed.

"My agents are already in the country to finalise everything and I know the nature of the contract. I'll arrive on loan with the option to buy."

Although Estigarribia didn't name Juventus, it's no secret that the Copa America star is on his way to Turin.

The South American is actually contracted to French club Le Mans, but he spent last term on loan in Argentina with Newell's Old Boys.

The loan of the player has cost Juve around €450,000, while the option to buy clause is reportedly set at €5m.
