Pazienza set to sign for Juve

Michele Pazienza will complete his move from Napoli to Italian giants Juventus at some stage today, reports claim.

The midfielder is expected in Turin to undergo his medical before signing a three-year contract with the Old Lady.

Pazienza will reportedly earn just over €1m a season. That amount could increase if bonus clauses are activated.

The Bianconeri have already netted Andrea Pirlo from Milan and Sampdoria's Reto Ziegler on free transfers.

Now Juve will complete their hat-trick of Bosmans with Pazienza who is out of contract at the end of this month.

Pazienza, born in 1982, is a combative midfielder who has been unable to reach agreement over a contract extension at the Stadio San Paolo.

Pazienza started his career at Foggia, before moves to Udinese and Fiorentina. He joined Napoli in January 2008.
