Giuseppe Rossi could find himself even closer to Juventus by the end of today after his agent flew out for talks with Villarreal.
The Turin giants have turned their attention to the Italian international after Sergio Aguero proved too costly for them.
With the Atletico Madrid player now set to join Manchester City, Rossi is the Old Lady's top transfer target.
Juventus have offered Villarreal a deal worth around €27m, a figure which includes bonuses, for the former Manchester United youngster.
Rossi's representative Federico Pastorello will reportedly be in Spain later today to try and finalise details.
The Bianconeri have been flexing their transfer muscles this week after agreeing a deal to sign Arturo Vidal from Bayer Leverkusen.
