TURIN, Jan 28 — Serbia striker Dusan Vlahovic arrived at Juventus for a medical today ahead of a much-anticipated winter break transfer to the Italian giants.

An official announcement on the move from fellow Serie A club Fiorentina was expected later today.

Often compared to Zlatan Ibrahimovic, the Serb has 17 goals in Serie A this season and Juventus are ready to pay around €70 million (RM326 million) for the youngster as they seek to fill the goal gap left by Cristiano Ronaldo.

Vlahovic’s signing is expected to help Juventus in its bid to get in the Champions League.

The team is currently a point off the top four, having played a game more than fourth-placed Atalanta.
