Report: Witsel flies in for Juventus

Zenit midfielder Axel Witsel is flying in to take his Juventus medical tomorrow, claim reports in Italy and Belgium.

Coach Mircea Lucescu confirmed today that Witsel was in negotiations with the Bianconeri.

Now Belgian site RTBF.be claims the player is flying out this evening to Turin, having left the Belgium camp.

Sky Sport Italia note the details are an €18m fee plus €3m in performance-related bonuses.

He is set to undergo a medical tomorrow morning before completing the transfer.

Zenit were known to want €22m, but have seemingly lowered their asking price because he’ll be a free agent next year.
