Lucio, 34, had been linked with Fenerbahce and Malaga after it was announced this week he had parted company with Inter Milan by mutual consent.

But Juventus are closing in on his signature, releasing a statement that read: "Today is the day for Lucio to undergo a medical.

"The Brazilian defender has arrived in Turin this morning to undergo the appropriate medical examinations at the Sessant Clinic of Fornaca."

It is reported that Lucio, who joined Inter from Bayern Munich in the summer of 2009, will sign a two-year contract with the Old Lady.
