Juventus to sign Nicolas Anelka

News out of Italy last night suggested Nicolas Anelka is set to join Juventus after his contract with Chinese side Shanghai Shenua was terminated.

The player has been recently training with former club PSG, and had been linked with a move to the Premier League with West Ham United and Queens Park Rangers.

At thirty-three this isn't the move 'The old Lady' were expecting after recently completing the signing of Spanish International striker Fernando Llorente from Athletic Bilbao.

Anelka is set to join the current Serie A Champions on a six month contract, which will earn the player around £1 million.

Any move for Lyon striker Lisandro Lopez looks to have ended with the news of Anelka's arrival, with the Argentine reportedly set to join the club on loan until the end of the season with a permanent fee also being pre-agreed.

The former France International will travel to Italy on Monday to undergo a medical with the club and finalise personal terms.
