Arthur Melo is in Turin to finalise his move to Juventus following Barcelona’s 2-2 draw with Celta Vigo.

The midfielder was a late substitute in the match at Balaidos on Saturday afternoon and was then given permission by the club to fly to Italy for a medical.

Arthur has reportedly agreed a five-year deal with the Serie A champions and will finalise his move today with an announcement expected soon.

The 23-year-old will miss Barcelona’s training session on Sunday but is expected back on Monday for training ahead of Wednesday’s game against Atletico, according to Mundo Deportivo.

Miralem Pjanic is also set for a medical on Sunday which could take place in Turin rather than Barcelona, due to coronavirus travel restrictions.
