According to Sky Sports, Juventus are closing in on the signing of Swedish prospect Dejan Kulusevski for a deal worth £37.3m.

The Serie A giants have fended off the transfer interests from Manchester United and Arsenal for the Atalanta star, who is set for his medical at Turin.

The 19-year-old will remain with Parma, the club which he is currently spending his loan spell at, for the remainder of the season. He is reportedly set to sign a five year deal with the Bianconeri.

Kulusevski became a revelation in the on-going Serie A season, bagging 4 goals and 7 assists in 17 matches for Parma. He is also the second most assists provider in the competition at the moment.

The Swedish teenager is a versatile forward as he can play in the wings and also as a midfielder.

Maurizio Sarri’s men are currently second in the Serie A table and will play against Cagliari on Monday.
