The signing of Edin Dzeko by Juventus is set to shut the door on Luis Suarez, with the want-away Barca forward snubbed despite taking a language test.
Juventus have been in the market for a striker since the departure Gonzalo Higuain.
Reports coming from Sky Italia claim that Juve will be paying Roma around €15m for Dzeko, with Roma motivated to get rid of the striker by a desire to reduce their wage bill.
The 34-year-old will sign a two-year deal in Piedmont worth €7.5 million (£7m/$9m) per year, while the Bianconeri will pay their rivals €16m (£15m/$19m) for his services.
During his time at Roma, he played 222 times for the club, scoring 106 goals, and topping the Serie A charts with 29 finishes in 2016-17.
The move leaves Suarez in limbo, after he was told by new Barca gaffer Ronald Koeman that he is surplus to requirements at Camp Nou.
With the door to Juve shut, it is thought that Atlético Madrid might be another likely move for the Uruguayan.
