Juventus have reached an agreement with Lille for the signing of U.S. men's national team star Timothy Weah.
  • USMNT star nearing Juventus deal
  • Personal terms already agreed
  • Weah recently won Nations League with U.S.

WHAT HAPPENED? GOAL can confirm that Juventus have reached a full agreement for the transfer of Weah, with the Italian giants set to pay a fee of around €12 million ($13.15m/£10.3m). Weah has already reportedly agreed personal terms and a medical will now be scheduled for later this week.

The American star has previously been linked with the likes of Marseille and Sevilla.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Weah would be an interesting fit at Juventus given his ability to play both as a wingback and winger. He played the former at Lille last season, filling in as an injury replacement before actually impressing in the role.

He could follow in the footsteps of a player like Juan Cuadrado, who has shined in the position for Juventus for years. Juve currently have one American on their books, Weston McKennie, who himself faces an uncertain future after a frustrating loan spell at Leeds.

WHAT NEXT FOR THE USMNT? After Weah and the USMNT lifted the Nations League trophy, a largely-separate group is now competing in the Gold Cup, which began with a 1-1 draw against Jamaica on Saturday.
