TRANSFER FIGHT! Juventus prepare £19m bid for Everton target Axel Witsel

Juventus are hoping to beat Everton to the signing of Axel Witsel by offering Zenit St Petersburg £19m for the Belgian.

The midfielder is ready to leave Russia this summer as he seeks a new challenge.

The Toffees are keen on bringing the 27-year-old to Goodison Park, while Stoke City and Rome have also expressed an interest in the player.

However, according to Tuttosport, the Serie A champions are ready to battle for Witsel by submitting a bid.

The Italian champions are bracing themselves for the departure of Paul Pogba by looking at a number of central midfielders.

Witsel is high on that list and Juve believe they can snap him up for around £19m.
