thumbnail Hello,

The Argentine midfielder is undergoing a series of physical tests at the Turin side ahead of his proposed move from Udinese

Juventus have confirmed that Udinese winger Roberto Pereyra will undergo a medical with the Serie A champions on Wednesday.

The Turin giants are keen to add some more depth to their attack and they see the 23-year-old Pereyra as a useful addition to their squad, having captured €20 million striker Alvaro Morata in the past few days.

"Pereyra is in Turin for Juventus medical," a statement on the club's official website reads.

"The 23-year-old midfielder is currently undergoing medical tests ahead of a proposed move from Udinese.

"The young Argentine will take his first tests at the city's Clinica Fornaca di Sessant, before completing the procedure at the Istituto di Medicina dello Sport medical centre." Pereyra started his professional career with River Plate and made the move to Udinese in the summer of 2011.

The Argentine has since developed into an important first-team member at the Stadio Friuli, making over 100 official appearances in the past three seasons.

Juventus have already secured the services of Morata from Real Madrid, Patrice Evra from Manchester United and Kingsley Coman from Paris Saint-Germain as new head coach Massimiliano Allegri looks to bolster his squad to challenge for both domestic and European honours next season.
