The agent of Udinese fullback Pablo Armero has confirmed a deal with Juventus is now close.

Juve are in talks with Udinese over a fee for the defender.

Claudio Vagheggi confirmed: "Juventus wants to close the loan agreement with the right of permanency, but rather Udinese wants to sell and monetize the player.

"The player is in agreement with the club's line and awaits developments."
