Valencia close to Juve’s goalkeeper

Valencia have agreed personal terms with Juventus goalkeeper Norberto Neto but the two clubs are yet to finalise a transfer fee, say reports in Spain.

According to Marca, Juve are requesting €10m for the Brazilian while Los Che are unwilling to go above €6m while La Gazzetta dello Sport state an €8m bid has been lodged by a Premier League club.

Neto was Fiorentina’s first choice goalkeeper for two seasons before moving to the J-stadium in 2015, where he has been limited to 11 Serie A appearances across two years as understudy to Gianluigi Buffon.

Marca believe a deal is close and Neto will join Valencia, despite interest from both Milan and Napoli.

Meanwhile, Valencia are looking to move on Diego Alves due to his wages, to follow the exit of goalkeeper Mathew Ryan to Brighton.
