Juventus have agreed a deal to sign the Italy international for an initial fee of €40m, with the player set to sign a contract until 2022.

The 23-year-old winger, who scored 11 league goals last season, has long been a reported target for the Serie A champions and if reports in Italy are to be believed, Juventus’ chase to sign Bernardeschi has come to an end.

He’s been one of Juventus’ top transfer targets since the opening of the ‘transfer window’ and the possibility of Juventus signing Bernardeschi has almost always been at the top of the list since the summer transfer window officially opened up.

According to Di Marzio, Bernardeschi will earn around €4m-per-season at the Italian giants, with Juve having negotiated a fee below the €50m that Fiorentina hoped to receive.

Juventus wanted to upgrade their caliber of player on the wings this summer, and it seems that they have succeeded in doing that. Juventus signed Douglas Costa from Bayern Munich this summer, the Brazilian initially joining on a loan deal. And now, Juventus has come to an agreement with La Viola to bring Bernardeschi to Turin.
