Matthijs de Ligt will join Juventus after the Serie A champions agreed an €82 million (£71.6m) deal with Ajax, according to reports in Italy.

The 19-year-old has attracted interest from several clubs in Europe including Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United.

Barcelona were in the driving seat to sign De Ligt but their refusal to increase their offer after further talks with his agent Mino Raiola allowed Juventus to gain the upper hand.

And according to widespread reports in Italy, De Ligt will now join Juventus after the club finally reached an agreement with Ajax.
