Timothy Weah was rumored to be in OM's sights at the end of April, but is now set to leave LOSC for Juventus.

At the end of April, when Igor Tudor was still at OM, Timothy Weah was the talk of the town. This is what the daily L'Equipe revealed at the time. Since then, the Croatian has left and so has the interest in LOSC's versatile American striker.

According to several Italian and French media reports, Timothy Weah (23) has reached an agreement with Juventus Turin, where a five-year contract awaits him until 2028. LOSC and the Italian club are said to be close to agreement on a transfer worth around €12m. That's €12m, plus €102 in bonuses, according to Sky Italia.

PSG should recoup a small sum

An interesting amount for the Dogues, given that Weah has just one year left on his contract. Sources such as L'Equipe also point to a potential percentage on resale in Lille's favor, while PSG should also receive a small sum by virtue of a percentage on the capital gain of a future resale negotiated in 2019 at the time of his transfer to LOSC.

Weah was sold for €10m and PSG negotiated 10% of the capital gain on a future resale, according to Goal. If Weah is sold for €12m to Juventus, PSG will receive 10% of €2m, or €200,000. It could even be less, according to Marc Mechenoua, PSG correspondent for Goal.
