The Bianconeri have long been considered favourites to land the services of the talented 19-year-old but in recent weeks, Manchester City and Paris St-Germain were both rumoured to have expressed an interest in signing him.
However, Verratti's representative Donato Di Campli has since revealed that Juve will be meeting Pescara next week to open official transfer negotiations.
"The two clubs will meet next week," Di Campli told Tuttomercatoweb.
"Juve would be willing to leave him at home [Pescara] for a season, but they can also take him in a co-ownership deal."
The agent also dismissed suggests Inter Milan were also in the running, and revealed he had yet to receive an enquiry from PSG.
"I haven't heard from Inter and, at the moment, there does not seem to be any interest from the French," Di Campli added. "But should there be, we would obviously evaluate it.
"We are speaking hypothetically, of course, but obviously if PSG should take [an interest in] him, I don't believe he could remain at Pescara."
While he originally started his career as an attacking midfielder, Verratti was converted into a deep-lying playmaker by then-Pescara coach Zdenek Zeman this past season and helped the Delfini to promotion from Serie B.
Already, he has garnered comparisons with Andrea Pirlo, a player said to be one of his favourites, and has been capped by the Italy U-21 side.
