Estigarribia flies in for Juve

Marcelo Alejandro Estigarribia has reportedly touched down in Turin ahead of his medical with Juventus.

The Gazzetta dello Sport's website claims that the 23-year-old has arrived in Italy ahead of his loan move.

The Paraguayan, who is a left winger, will apparently speak to Old Lady officials later today.

Estigarribia caught Juventus' eye following an impressive Copa America campaign where his side finished the competition as runners-up.

The South American is 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.
