The front page of Italian newspaper Corriere Dello Sport today highlights Juventus’ effort to sign Romelu Lukaku from Chelsea.

With the striker left out of the Blues’ pre-season tour, he’s been waiting for club and agents to finally sort his way out of London.

Corriere Dello Sport’s story is about Juventus’ strong wish to get Lukaku from Chelsea. It’s explained that they already have a deal with the player and now work with the Stamford Bridge side.

The big obstacle for the Old Lady is interest from Saudi Arabia. It’s claimed that the likes of Al-Hilal and Al-Ahli are ready to outbid them in all movements they make.

On the Juventus side, there’s the player’s will. It’s claimed he’s not convinced about moving to the Saudi league, and is set to honour his word with the Serie A giants.

That’s why the story claims the deal is ‘still firmly standing’, as Lukaku is ‘one step away’ from joining the Bianconeri.

The big detail is the agreement with Chelsea. Juventus’ plan is to sell Dusan Vlahovic and other attackers to have the funds to finance the signing.
