Paris Saint Germain (PSG) midfielder Adrien Rabiot has touched down in Italy ahead of his proposed move to Italian Serie A champions Juventus.
The French midfielder has agreed on a free transfer deal with the Italians ahead of the new season.
His arrival in Italy was confirmed by Juventus via their official Twitter account on Sunday evening.
Adrien Rabiot agreed to a four-year deal worth €7m on a yearly basis with the Italian champions.
In addition, the Chelsea and Man United target will also be given €10m as his sign-on fee.
Adrien Rabiot will join Juventus on a free transfer after the expiration of his contract with PSG.
His PSG contract expires at the end of June.
The 23-year-old is expected to undergo his medical later this week ahead of an official announcement from Juventus.
The free transfer deal to sign Adrien Rabiot was sealed by Juventus sporting director Fabio Paratici on Friday.
The Juventus director traveled to Paris to seal the deal for a player linked with several clubs on the European football scene.
Barcelona, Manchester United, Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool are some of the clubs that have been linked with the player in the past.
He would be the second free transfer signing of the summer for Juventus after Aaron Ramsey.
Chelsea: Legend Attacks Nigerian Forward
Former Chelsea defender Robert Huth has questioned the ability of Nigerian attacker Kelechi Iheanacho.
Robert Huth talked about Super Eagles player Iheanacho while he was on BBC Radio 5 Live.
According to him, Kelechi Iheanacho does not have the quality to replace Jamie Vardy as the lone striker for Leicester City.
Kelechi Iheanacho is in his third season at Leicester City following his big money move from Premier League champions Manchester City.
Leicester City paid around £25m to sign Iheanacho from Leicester City.
Since his transfer, Kelechi Iheanacho has not been able to nail down a starting spot in the Leicester City team.
He has not been able to displace England international Jamie Vardy as the lone striker in the starting XI at the King Power Stadium.
Kelechi Iheanacho has hardly featured for Leicester City since Brendan Rodgers was appointed as the replacement for French tactician Claude Puel at the club.
His plight at Leicester City was further compounded this summer with the signing of Spanish attacker Ayoze Perez for £30m.
Ayoze Perez joined the Foxes from fellow Premier League outfit Newcastle United.
Iheanacho paid dearly for his lack of playing time at Leicester City after he missed out on the Super Eagles squad that finished theirs at this summer’s African Cup of Nations (AFCON) tournament in Egypt.

Chelsea Block Tiemoue Bakayoko From Leaving Stamford Bridge
Premier League giants Chelsea have blocked midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko from leaving the club according to the latest reports coming out of the media in France.
Tiemoue Bakayoko is surplus to requirements at Chelsea and the West London giants are keen to offload him before the transfer window ends next month.
The Premier League transfer market has ended but French international Tiemoue Bakayoko can still seek a move away from the club before the European transfer window ends on the 2nd of September.
According to RMC Sports, French Ligue 1 giants want to sign Bakayoko on loan for the season but Chelsea have blocked the deal with the West Londoners holding out for a permanent transfer for the player they signed from the same club for £40m.
He played 185 minutes during Chelsea’s pre-season but manager Frank Lampard told him that he’s not in his plans for the future.
Bakayoko is back at Chelsea this summer after the Frenchman spent last season on loan at Italian Serie A giants AC Milan.
He had a good loan spell with the Rossoneri but they decided against signing him on a permanent deal mainly due to disciplinary issues after falling out with manager Gennaro Gattuso at the end of last season.
