Lichtsteiner days away from Juve

Lazio's Stephan Lichtsteiner will become a Juventus player by the end of this week, his agent has predicted.

This morning the Old Lady publicly declared that they are close to finding an agreement with Lazio for his swoop.

"I can confirm what Juve director Beppe Marotta said earlier today," Federico Pastorello told Radio Mana Mana.

"There is still a little difference between the offer and the asking price, but I do think that there won't be a problem. That's the hope anyway.

"I think I can calmly say that it will all be resolved at some stage during the week ahead."

Juventus are said to be offering €9m for the full-back, while Lazio are reportedly pushing for closer to the €12m release clause fixed into his contract.
