June 9, 2011

Juventus have agreed a deal with Lazio for the signing of full-back Stephan Lichtsteiner, according to the player's representative.

Lichtsteiner, a Switzerland international, has been linked with a move away from Rome this summer and Juve are among a number of clubs eager to land the 27-year-old.

Lichtsteiner's representative Federico Pastorello told Gazzetta dello Sport: ''We have been informed that an agreement has been reached between the Bianconeri and Lazio. We wait to be called and put pen to paper in order for Stephan to achieve his dream.''

Lichtsteiner joined Lazio from Lille in 2008 and is under contract for a further season.
