Benedikt Höwedes has agreed personal terms with Juventus, according to Bild, with Inter and Spartak Moscow also making offers for the Schalke defender.
This morning, Kicker reported that Schalke had yet to receive any offers for Höwedes, with a potential move picking up in the past couple of hours. However, the 29-year-old has yet to express his desire to leave.
Italian journalist Romeo Agresti suggests that the final details of this transfer are being sorted out. If Juventus persist, we could potentially see this deal complete within a couple of days.
