Milos Krasic has revealed that he is closer to joining Juventus after reaching an agreement over personal terms.
Juve have been tracking the Serbia winger for much of the summer but have so far been frustrated in their efforts to bring him in.
The transfer saga now appears to be edging towards a conclusion following talks with Krasic, although Juve still need to agree a deal with CSKA Moscow.
The Russian side are reportedly holding out for a fee in the region of 18million euros (£15m), while Juve are only thought to have offered 15million euros (£12.4m).
"I have found an agreement with Juventus," Krasic told Sky Italia.
"All that is missing now is for the two clubs to agree terms."
Reports had suggested earlier on Monday that Juve were set to turn their focus from Krasic to Hamburg winger Eljero Elia.
