Dusan Vlahovic is ready to complete his switch to Juventus after arriving at his doctor on Friday.
The 21-year-old striker is set to seal a reported 75 million-euro transfer from Fiorentina, which appears to be confirmed before the weekend.
Juve posted a tweet showing the Serb arriving to take on the formalities of his move.
Vlahovic is the joint top scorer in Serie A this season with 17 goals from 21 appearances – a statement only matched by Lazio’s Ciro Immobile.

He has been linked with a host of top clubs across Europe following his impressive form in the last two seasons.
Vlahovic will join a Juve team that has often struggled to turn ball possession into goals this season, with Massimiliano Allegri’s men having scored just 34 times in 23 Serie A matches.
This means that their attack is the 11th best in the league, far behind the leading Inter (53), while Fiorentina have scored 41 times so far with Vlahovic on board.
Serbian national team player Vlahovic, who joined La Viola from Partizan in 2018, has converted 28 great chances since the start of last season, more than any other player in Serie A.
His number of 21 goals during 2020-21 was the highest recorded by a Fiorentina player in a single campaign since Alberto Gilardino in 2008-09 (25).
Vlahovic also scored 33 league goals in 2021; matches Cristiano Ronaldo’s record for most goals scored in the Italian top match in a calendar year.
Last week, Fiorentina’s CEO Joe Barone confirmed that the club was open to selling Vlahovic, who subsequently missed Sunday’s draw with Cagliari due to a positive COVID-19 test.
Vlahovic’s imminent signing could pave the way for Alvaro Morata to leave Juve, where Barcelona are reportedly eager to sign the Spanish national team player, who has been loaned out from Atletico Madrid.
