Juve close on Lemina deal

While waiting for Julian Draxler, Juventus are finalising their deal for Mario Lemina with Olympique Marseille.

Schalke 04 have still not given the all-clear for Draxler, despite reports of an agreement worth €26m plus €6m bonuses.

With transfer deadline day on Monday, the Bianconeri are locking down an alternative and could solve two problems in one move.

Sky Sport Italia claim Juve will hand Paolo De Ceglie and Mauricio Isla to Marseille as part of the package for Lemina.

The 21-year-old will arrive on loan for €1.5m with an option to buy at the end of the season for another €10.5m.

Lemina is a box-to-box midfielder who can play in several different positions.
