Juve to make €12m Bastos bid

The Corriere dello Sport is suggesting that Juventus are closing in on Michel Bastos of Lyon.

The left-sided player has been tracked for the last 12 months by the Old Lady and a deal may finally be on the horizon.

The rule change that will now allow Italian clubs to sign two non-EU players has apparently opened the door for Juve to make their move.

It's understood that the Bianconeri will make the French club an offer of €12m for the Brazilian international.

Lyon are hoping to get around €16m for the 28-year-old.

Juventus are looking for midfield width following the appointment of boss Antonio Conte and his 4-4-2/4-2-4 system.
