Italian champions Juventus are close to signing teenage midfielder Rodrigo Bentancur from Boca Juniors.

Bentancur, 19, was in Turin on Monday to have a medical before joining the Serie A leaders.

The Uruguay Under-20 international is a product of Argentine club Boca Juniors’ youth team.

Juventus negotiated a purchase option on Bentancur when striker Carlos Tevez moved back to Boca Juniors from the Turin club in June 2015.
