USMNT star forward Timothy Weah has been filmed by Serie A giants Juventus’ in-house media team ahead of his imminent summer transfer from Lille.
The 23-year-old New York-born wideman touched down in Turin airport yesterday ahead of his medical today with The Black and Whites’ where he was welcomed by Juve fans and wellwishers.

The USMNT star will become the second member of the Weah family to play in Serie A, following in the footsteps of his father George who won the Italian Scudetto twice with AC Milan between 1995 and 2000 and the Ballon d’Or during his time with the club.
Weah had time to take photos with the crowd and sign autographs on arrival before his medical at the club’s medical center ahead of his $13m move from French club Lille- which is set to be confirmed later today.

Weah will not, however, be joined at the Allianz Stadium next season by USMNT teammate Christian Pulisic who is set to sign for his father’s ex-side AC Milan in the forthcoming weeks and will wear the number 22 shirt with The Old Lady next season which was vacated following the departure of winger Angel Di Maria.
