The Italian champions have beaten Fenerbahce and Malaga in the race to sign the 34-year-old.

Lucio was tied for one more year to Inter Milan but terminated his contract with the Nerazzurri outfit earlier this week.

A statement from Juventus read: "Today is the day for Lucio to undergo a medical.

"The Brazilian defender has arrived in Turin this morning to undergo the appropriate medical examinations at the Sessant Clinic of Fornaca."

Lucio is expected to sign a two-year contract with the Bianconeri outfit.

The South American joined Inter from Bayern Munich in the summer of 2009 and won the scudetto, Serie A and Champions League titles in his first season in Italy.

When asked about Lucio's imminent move to Juve, Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti said on the club's official website: "These things happen in football. When you rescind a contract, a player is free to go wherever he wants to."
