|Juventus are close to completing the signing of Como striker Simone Andrea Ganz.
The 22-year-old forward is out of contract with the Lariani in the summer and is now expected to leave the Serie B outfit after two years at the Stadio Giuseppe Sinigaglia.
According to the Gazzetta dello Sport, the former AC Milan striker is set to sign a five-year deal with the Bianconeri in the coming days, and will officially join the Turin giants in June where he is expected to be sent out on loan for the 2016-2017 season to gain more experience.
The Genoa-born striker began his professional career with the Rossoneri in 2011, and scored 59 goals in 67 appearances for the club’s Primavera side, before spending loan spells at Lumezzane and Barletta in 2013 and 2014 respectively.
Before the start of the 2014-2015 season, the former Italy Under-19 forward joined the then Lega Pro side Como and helped the club win promotion back to Serie B with 18 goals in 36 games in all competitions.
Despite Gianluca Festa’s side sitting bottom of Serie B so far this campaign Ganz has scored 10 goals in 20 appearances.
Ganz is the son of Maurizio Ganz who represented Sampdoria, Atalanta, Inter, Parma and AC Milan where he won the 1998-99 Scudetto.
