Valencia defender Ezequiel Garay should join Juventus next week, according to VarskySports in Argentina.
It is no secret that the 30-year-old is a target to reinforce the back line after Leonardo Bonucci’s departure to Milan.
La Gazzetta dello Sport and Tuttosport also place Garay at the top of the list of likely summer swoops in the closing days of the transfer window.
He had been on the verge of a transfer to Spartak Moscow, but reportedly pulled out because his wife did not want a move to Russia.
The family only just left Zenit St Petersburg a year ago in a deal worth €24m.
Yesterday Valencia completed the signing of Jeison Murillo from Inter, on a two-year loan with obligation to buy for €13m.
Garay had also been mentioned as a part-exchange with Murillo for the Nerazzurri.
