Juventus are on the verge of completing a deal for Mirko Vucinic from Roma worth a reported €15million (£13.2m).
The 27-year-old will have a medical at the club on Monday before wrapping up a four-year deal.
Premier League clubs Blackburn Rovers, Manchester United and Tottenham had all been linked with the striker during the summer.
"Vucinic arrived in the city last night and will undergo his medical today," said a statement on the Juve's official website.
No problems are anticipated with the Montenegro international's fitness and he will be announced as a Juventus player should he pass his medical.
Vucinic has scored 46 Serie A goals in three years and will be the third striker Juve will sign if the deal is completed.
