Ziegler set for Juve switch

Switzerland international Reto Ziegler is set to become Juventus’ second summer signing following the arrival of ex-AC Milan star Andrea Pirlo, according to reports in Italy.

The 25-year-old left-back is undergoing a medical today in Turin before putting pen to paper on a contract with Juventus.

Ziegler will join Juve as a free agent after playing three seasons at Sampdoria.

Juve, who have yet to announce who will replace sacked coach Luigi Del Neri, acquired Italy international Pirlo yesterday.

A former Tottenham player, Ziegler scored one goal in 34 league appearances for Samp, who were relegated to the second division this season.
