Miralem Pjanic is on the brink of completing a EUR38million transfer from Roma to Juventus, according to his representative Adis Junuzovic.
The Bosnia-Herzegovina international has been heavily linked with a move to the Serie A champions in recent months.
And Pjanic's PR manager, Junuzovic, has claimed Juve have taken a step towards securing his signature by meeting the release fee in his contract.
"Juventus have activated the EUR38m clause and we expect to finalise the transfer very soon," he told N1.
Junuzovic suggested the Turin giants have beaten off competition from Paris Saint-Germain, Chelsea and Barcelona in order to sign the midfielder.
"There were a lot of clubs interested in him; PSG, Chelsea, Barcelona. Juventus were the fastest and most concrete," he continued.
"[The signing of the contract] should happen within the next week, and then there's the official presentation."
