Serbian widely tipped as Pavel Nedved's successor...
Juventus are best placed to sign CSKA Moscow midfielder Milos Krasic and a move could be completed by Friday if both clubs agree, according to his agent Dejan Joksimovic.

Despite strong interest from a number of top clubs, it's Juventus who have made the strongest pitch.

"There is interest from Arsenal and Manchester United, but there has not been any concrete offer. The only offers that have arrived so far are from Fenerbahce and Juventus, but Krasic is not enthusiastic about playing in Turkey," the agent told Russian media, as reported by Tuttosport.

"He is excited by the Juventus idea, firstly because the Bianconeri want to create a great squad for next season, and secondly because they have offered Milos a contract."

The next step is to convince CSKA Moscow to yield their grip on the player by presenting them with a decent bid.

"Krasic likes the offer, and now it's down to the clubs to find an agreement," added the agent.

"I don't think the Russians will block a move. They know he has given plenty and it's time for him to move.

"He wants to sign before the World Cup. A deal may even be signed in South Africa over the coming days."
