Juventus is to sign young right-back from Porto
- Juve is reported to negotiate the signing of Fernando Fonseca
- Fonseca is to join the Italian side on loan
The young Portuguese wing-back is expected to join Juventus shortly. The Old Lady is eager to sign the defender in order to reinforce their U23 squad, which performs in Serie C.
It is reported by sources in Portugal, that the sides will sign a season-long loan contract with a buying option that will become active next summer. The reported fee for the player is about €2 million.
Fernando Fonseca spent the last season in Estoril, having made 19 appearances there. He only capped once for Porto, as the Portuguese side consider another loan to be the best option for the young prospect.
Fonseca is also the Portugal international, having represented his country at U18, U19, U21 and U23 levels. The defender has in total 27 caps for the country.
