The 29-year-old is set to join the Italian giants with reports suggesting the deal is worth 25million euros and will see him sign a four-year contract.

A statement from Juventus read: "Mario Mandzukic is this morning undergoing a routine medical ahead of his proposed transfer to Juventus from Atletico Madrid.

"The 29-year-old forward will take his first tests at the city's Clinica Fornaca di Sessant, before completing the procedure at the Istituto di Medicina dello Sport medical centre."

Mandzukic joined Atletico last summer from Bayern Munich and scored 20 goals in 43 games for the Spanish side.

Juve are looking to strengthen their attacking line with Argentinian forward Carlos Tevez expected to leave the club this summer.

Tevez, Juve's top scorer in the past two seasons, is under contract with Juve for another year but is keen to return home to Argentina, with former club Boca Juniors keen to acquire his services.

Juve won the domestic double - Serie A and Coppa Italia - for the first time since 1995 under first-year coach Massimiliano Allegri last season and also reached the Champions League final before losing 3-1 to Barcelona.
