L’Est Republicain is reporting that Juventus have agreed to sign French defender Clement Lenglet from Nancy.
The Bianconeri have been monitoring the youngster’s progress since the start of the season and they recently decided to make their interest concrete.
Lenglet spent several days in Turin with his father, where he was given a tour of the facilities and also watched Juventus defeat Empoli in Serie A.
The 19-year-old has agreed to join the Old Lady in the summer and it is believed the Italian club will have no problems agreeing a transfer fee with cash-strapped Nancy.
Lenglet started the current campaign as a back-up, but he managed to nail down a regular starting berth at the turn of the year.
He has since started 11 Ligue 2 matches for Nancy, helping the club sustain a serious promotion challenge in the process. Nancy currently sit four points behind promotion places with eight games to go.
