Romero has Juve medical

Genoa defender Cristian Romero has arrived to complete his transfer to Juventus.

Juve’s official Twitter account snapped Romero checking in for his medical on Tuesday morning.

The Argentine will then sign his contract before being confirmed as a Bianconeri player, although he is expected to be sent back to Genoa on loan.

The 21-year-old only joined the Grifone from Belgrano last summer in a €1.65m deal.

Despite the Rossoblu’s difficult campaign, he became a virtual ever-present after early October, missing only four Serie A games.

He will become Juve’s second defensive signing this summer after Merih Demiral and could be followed by another in Matthijs de Ligt.

Genoa, for their part, look like making a significant profit as the Old Lady will reportedly pay €15-20m for Romero.
