Boca Juniors' Rodrigo Bentancur having Juventus medical

Juventus have confirmed that Rodrigo Bentancur is having a medical ahead of a move from Boca Juniors.

Bentancur, 19, is expected to join in the summer ahead of the 2017-18 season after Juve took out a €9.4 million buying right when Carlos Tevez left to join Boca.

Juventus said in a statement on their official website: "Rodrigo Bentancur arrived at J-Medical this afternoon. The Uruguayan midfielder is carrying out routine tests ahead of a proposed move to Juventus from Boca Juniors."

General manager Beppe Marotta confirmed Juve's interest in the midfielder in September when he told Mediaset television: "We've got a buying right on Bentancur as part of the sale of Tevez and almost certainly we will make use of it.

"It will be a transfer that we do for the 2017-18 season."

Juventus' right to buy Bentancur expires this month -- together with similar options on Guido Vadala, Franco Cristaldo and Adrian Cubas.
