Juve close in on Mellberg

22 Jan 2008 - 10:52:28

Aston Villa defender Olof Mellberg is close to agreeing a move to Juventus in the summer.

The 30-year-old Sweden international has spent more than six years at Villa Park, making almost 250 first-team appearances in the process, but now appears to be on the verge of starting a new chapter in his career.

Juve's sporting director, Alessio Secco, said: "Mellberg is close to signing a preliminary agreement with Juventus.

"If everything goes well, the player will become a Juve player in July. There are still minor things left to discuss before he signs the preliminary agreement."

Juve are also chasing Liverpool midfielder Mohamed Sissoko, with Secco adding: "He is a player that we are interested in.

"And we haven't ruled out the possibility of him joining us in the winter transfer window. We will see."
