Italy Under-21 international Federico Bernardeschi is undergoing a medical at Juventus ahead of completing his transfer from Fiorentina. Manchester United had also been linked with the 23-year-old winger but he looks ready to move to the the Serie A champions in a deal worth around €40m (£35.8m, $46.6) plus add-ons.
Bernardeschi has garnered a big reputation in his homeland following a sensational 2016-2017 campaign with Fiorentina, scoring 14 goals and grabbing five assists in 42 appearances.
The talented attacker also starred during the recent Under-21 European Championship, netting two goals in four games to help his national team reach the semi-finals of the tournament played in Poland.
Reports from Italy last month claimed that Manchester United were closely monitoring his situation ahead of making a move to lure him to Old Trafford.
Jose Mourinho has earmarked the signing of Ivan Perisic as a top priority for the current transfer window but Media Set reported then that United had identified Bernardeschi as a potential alternative due to Inter Milan's reluctance to negotiate the sale of the Croatia international.
But Juventus have now announced that the Italian winger is undergoing a medical ahead of his move from Fiorentina - while United remain locked in negotiations with Inter over a deal for Perisic.
"Federico Bernardeschi arrived at J|Medical this morning at approximately 9.45 CEST," the Serie A giants confirmed. "The Italian wide forward is undergoing tests ahead of his proposed move from Fiorentina."
La Gazzetta dello Sport claims that Juventus will pay €40m plus add-ons for his services, with Fiorentina getting 10 percent of any future sell-on fee.
Bernardeschi is the second high-profile winger signed by Juventus during the current transfer window with Douglas Costa also joining the club from Bayern Munich.
