Juventus have agreed personal terms with defender Matthijs de Ligt ahead of his proposed move from Ajax, according to reports in Italy.
It is understood the Netherlands international has accepted a five-year contract offer which will see him earn €12m (£10.75m) a season with the Serie A champions.
A release clause will be included in his contract with Juve for around €150m (£135m).
Juventus will now start official talks with Ajax in an attempt to finalise the deal.
However, Paris Saint-Germain remain in the hunt for the 19-year-old and in contact with Ajax.
De Ligt is one of Europe’s most sought-after players after captaining Ajax to the Dutch league and cup double as well as the semi-finals of the Champions League last season.
