Agent of Lyon winger Michel Bastos denies reports of Juventus agreement

De Kerchove tells French media he is not aware of any new approach from Juventus for his client
The agent of Lyon winger Michel Bastos, Emmanuel De Kerchove, has denied reports suggesting a deal had been completed with Juventus over a transfer to Turin.

Last week De Kerchove told the Italian media that Inter were interested in the 27-year-old, but added that Juve had made the first move to land the Brazilian.

Speculation from France claimed that Juve were closing in on Bastos' signature on a four-year deal for a fee in the region of €17 million, but the representative stated that he was unaware of any such agreement.

"There is nothing new for the moment, we have to wait until next week," he is quoted as saying by L'Equipe.

The Turin giants are eager to land a wide midfielder and a new striker to their roster, as general director Giuseppe Marotta works to bolster new coach Antonio Conte's squad.
