Ziegler has Juventus medical

Juventus are soon set to announce the capture of Reto Ziegler after he arrived for his medical in Turin this morning.

The left-back is available on a Bosman free transfer as his Doria contract expires at the end of next month.

Juventus have been looking for new full-back options and transfer chief Beppe Marotta knows the man from Switzerland well given their time together at Marassi.

Ziegler will become Juve's second free signing of the summer after they yesterday grabbed Andrea Pirlo from Milan.

The Swiss defender has been in Italy since his January 2007 move from Tottenham to Sampdoria.

He's also played for Grasshoppers, Hamburg and Wigan.

Juventus are also expected to sign Napoli midfielder Michele Pazienza on a Bosman at some stage soon.
