Juventus closing deal for Marseille attacker Marley Ake

Juventus are closing on a deal for Olympique Marseille attacker Marley Ake.

The youngster appeared all set to be loaned out to a Ligue 2 team this week - that is before Juve showed their hand.

Foot Mercato says Juve want to buy Ake outright - and immediately.

A contract to 2026 has been submitted to the youngster's minders and talks are underway with OM over a fee for the 20 year-old.

Ake is expected to join Juve's U23 team to help him settle in Italian football before assessing his options in June.
