DUTCH DEFENDER MATTHIJS DE LIGT ARRIVING AT JUVENTUS MEDICAL CENTRE, DE LIGT POSING FOR PHOTOGRAPHS WITH FANS ON WHEELCHAIRS AND ENTERING JUVENTUS MEDICAL CENTRE STORY: Dutch defender Matthijs de Ligt has arrived in Turin for a medical ahead of his proposed €70m (£67.5m) transfer to Serie A champions Juventus.

19-year-old De Ligt captained Ajax through to the Champions League semi-finals earlier this year having joined the club's youth academy when he was just nine.

De Ligt was linked with many of Europe's top clubs this summer including Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United, but Juventus, who he scored against in the Champions League quarter-finals appear to have won the battle for the highly rated youngster.

He made his international debut in March 2017 aged just 17, becoming the Netherland's youngest player since 1931.
