Juventus medical for Higuain

Napoli striker Gonzalo Higuain has undergone a medical with officials from Juventus and has agreed a deal to join the club, according to Sky Italy.

Napoli and Juventus remain in negotiations about a potential deal for the 28-year-old Argentina international but the buyout clause is almost £79 million ($141m).

Higuain, who joined Napoli from Real Madrid in 2013, has two years remaining on his contract in Naples.

He ended the 2015/16 season as the top scorer in Serie A with 36 goals.

Both Arsenal and Atletico Madrid have been credited with an interest in Higuain's services this summer but it would appear Serie A champions Juventus are now poised to win the race for his signature. - PA Sport.
