Injury-hit Italian giants Juventus want to sign Aston Villa's veteran Swedish international defender Olof Mellberg, the English Premier League club said on Friday.

It could mean the 30-year-old will play his last game for Villa in Saturday's home clash with Blackburn.

Juventus are believed to have made an offer of £500,000 (€675,000) and Villa coach Martin O'Neill is expected to reveal whether a deal has gone through on Monday.

"Olof is keeping me in the picture. I have absolute trust in him. I know what is happening," said O'Neill.
