Lichtsteiner lined up for Juventus move

Lazio defender Stephan Lichtsteiner is set to be unveiled as a Juventus player.

Juve announced on their website the Switzerland international has passed a medical in Turin.

The 27-year-old full-back, who is under contract with Lazio for a further season, is expected to join Juve in a deal reportedly worth €12 million.

A statement from the club read: "Stephan Lichtsteiner is in Turin. The Swiss defender has undergone a medical."

Lichtsteiner has been a target of Juventus in recent months, with the Bianconeri looking to strengthen a defence which was one of their main weaknesses last term.

He moved to Lazio from Lille in the summer of 2008 and has been a regular in the Roman side.
