Juventus to complete deal for Roma's Marco Borriello on Monday - report

The out-of-favour striker appears poised to join the Turin-based club, with Antonio Conte's men desperate to add to their attacking options in the January transfer market
Juventus will complete the loan signing of Roma striker Marco Borriello on Monday, Tuttosport claims.

The Italian newspaper suggests that Roma CEO Claudio Fenucci will meet with Juventus general director Giuseppe Marotta at the start of the next week to finalise the transfer.

Borriello has made just two starting appearances this season and has been deemed surplus to requirements by coach Luis Enrique.

Inter and Olympique de Marseille were also credited with an interest in the 29-year-old, but it is believed that Juventus are just inches away from completing a deal.

The Turin-based outfit will reportedly pay €1 million to sign Borriello on loan until the end of the season, with an option to make the move permanent in the summer of 2012 for €8m inserted into the deal.
