According to the Sun via Goal’s Romeo Agresti, Juventus are close to completing the signing of promising winger Samuel Iling-Junior from Chelsea.
The Sun report that the 16-year-old has expressed his desire to leave the west London outfit, with Agresti adding that the talent has been in Turin recently to finalise a transfer.
Agresti suggests that only ‘some’ details need to be agreed, but Juventus are confident in securing the England Under-17s ace’s capture.
With the Sun reporting that the Turin outfit will only have to pay a small compensation fee for the ace, Juventus may well be on the brink of snagging themselves a bargain.

Iling-Junior has made 11 appearances for Chelsea’s Under-18s this season, registering one assist, the left-winger has also been with England at Under-15s and 16s level.
Iling-Junior just appears to be the latest promising Englishman to move abroad, generally, these kind of talents seem to have a better chance of kickstarting their professional careers outside of the grips of Premier League clubs.
