Juventus have reportedly made a last-gasp €24m offer for Torino midfielder Daniele Baselli, as Zenit stall Axel Witsel.
The Belgium international flew in to Turin for a medical last night and had agreed personal terms.
A deal was also done between the clubs for €18m plus €3m bonuses.
However, Zenit are seemingly refusing to release Witsel until they have a replacement lined up and that is taking longer than expected.
The main option for Zenit is Andreas Samaris from Benfica.
SportItalia claim Juve are turning their focus towards Torino’s 24-year-old talent Baselli for €24m.
Failing that, Hernanes could stay in Turin and not be allowed to complete his loan move to Genoa.
