Juventus agree deal for Lisandro Lopez

Juventus have agreed a deal with Lyon for striker Lisandro Lopez to join the club on loan.

The current Serie A champions are looking to bolster their attacking options with the Argentine International, and are also set to announce the capture of Athletic Bilbao forward Fernando Llorente tomorrow.

The 29-year old is set to join the club on loan for the remainder of the season for a fee believed to be around £1.5 million, with an option to make the move permanent for a further £6.5 million in the summer.

Lopez boasts a formidable scoring record during his tenure in Europe, with a goal ratio of 1 in 2 games being credible during his time with FC Porto and his current club Olympique Lyonnais.

A major drawing point for the transfer is the fact he would be eligible for the Champions League, where Juventus are through to the knockout stages of the competition with an upcoming fixture against SPL Champions Celtic.

Both the Lopez and Llorente deals are expected to be announced tomorrow.
