Juventus general manager Giuseppe Marotta has revealed that the club have agreed a fee with Sunderland for Emanuele Giaccherini, after the player requested the move.

The Black Cats are reportedly close to sealing a move for the Italy international after boss Antonio Conte also confirmed the transfer.

"In Giaccherini's transfer to Sunderland, the will of the player had priority over the club's," Sky Sports News quotes Marotta as saying.

"Emanuele evaluated, not only the economic aspects but also the standing he will have at Sunderland, and it was a challenge he decided to accept. We have gone along with his wishes."

Giaccherini made 21 appearances for Juve last season, scoring three goals.
