EDIN DZEKO has agreed terms with Juventus ahead of a £15million switch from Roma.
The Serie A side are set to sign the 34-year-old instead of Luis Suarez – even though the Barcelona star sat his Italian language exam today.
According to Goal, Dzeko will join Juventus on a two-year deal worth £7m-per-year.
He was put up for sale by Roma as the club wanted to get his salary off the books.
Dzeko – who joined Roma permanently in 2016 – scored 19 goals last season.
Juventus have picked the ex-Manchester City star to replace Higuain instead of Suarez.
