SUNDERLAND are closing in on Juventus midfielder Emanuele Giaccherini, according to reports in Italy.

The Black Cats have spent the last week in negotiations with Juventus over Giaccherini, with the Italian giants initially unwilling to part company with the 28-year-old.

But reports in Italy tonight have suggested Sunderland have made progress in their bid to land the attacking midfielder in a £7million deal.

The deal is not yet a done one, but Sunderland now look to be in a strong position to continue their summer spending spree with the capture of the Italian international, who impressed in the summer’s Confederations Cup.
