Romelu Lukaku has reportedly agreed to a three-year contract with Juventus, but the transfer depends on Dusan Vlahovic’s move to Chelsea.
The Serie A giants are keen on signing the Belgian striker, but the transfer is contingent on Vlahovic’s departure from Juventus.
According to Di Marzio, the two clubs are working to execute a swap deal which would see the two forwards heading in the opposite directions.
Meanwhile, Romelu Lukaku has already agreed to personal terms with the Bianconeri and will sign a three-year deal, with an option for an additional year.
Chelsea eye Vlahovic as a valuable acquisition to bolster their attacking options but aren’t ready to pay the €50 million (£43m/$54.60m) asking price.
However, it is understood that Juventus are willing to negotiate and could settle for €40m (£34.5m/$43.69m) as they are eager to finalise the deal.
Juventus are looking to balance their books and want to squeeze as much as they can from Chelsea by selling Vlahovic.
Coach Massimiliano Allegri admitted that if the deal goes through it will be due to the club’s financial needs.
