PSG's Blaise Matuidi undergoes Juventus medical ahead of €20m move

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti discusses the state of Juventus following their defeat against Lazio in the Italian Super Cup.

Juventus are closing in on the signing of Blaise Matuidi from Paris Saint-Germain, with the midfielder arriving in Turin for a medical on Wednesday.

The Serie A champions confirmed in a tweet that Matuidi landed in the Piedmont city at 16:00 and posed for photos with a Juventus scarf. He is set to visit the J Medical facilities to undergo tests before a transfer can be completed.

At the weekend, Juve's general manager Beppe Marotta told RAI television that the Bianconeri were going to make a "big-name signing in midfield."

Matuidi, who has long been a Juve target, is a player that coach Massimiliano Allegri had his sights on last summer.

The 30-year-old has been an almost ever-present for PSG in each of the past six seasons since joining them from St Etienne, and has won the Ligue 1 title four times during that spell.

But he was only a substitute in their opening two games of the current season as Juve strengthened their interest, leading to what is set to be an agreement over a €20 million deal.

He will join Claudio Marchisio, Miralem Pjanic and Sami Khedira as Allegri's senior central midfield options for the upcoming Serie A season, which starts on Saturday when Juve face Cagliari.
