Everton on outer as Juventus close to Axel Witsel deal

Juventus see Zenit St Petersburg midfielder Axel Witsel as an ideal successor for Paul Pogba.

Witsel has been linked with Everton, but a deal has been delayed amid claims Juve will sign the Belgian once Pogba’s move to Manchester United is sealed.

Corriere della Sera says Juve are now ready to make an offer for Witsel.

The Bianconeri have also asked about AC Milan defender Mattia de Sciglo, who has been made available.

Milan are demanding €60 million for the Italy defender.
