Juventus have signed young Italy winger Federico Bernardeschi from Fiorentina on a five-year contract.
The 23-year-old Tuscan, who scored 11 league goals for La Viola last season, attended Juve's medical centre on Monday morning and has now committed to the Serie A champions until 2022 for a reported fee of €40m (£35m).
Tweets published by Juve's official account showed Bernardeschi, who earned the first of his nine Italy caps in March 2016, meeting Bianconeri fans before and after his medical in Turin.
He is now expected to link up with his new team-mates in the United States ahead of friendly meetings with Paris Saint-Germain and Roma.
Juventus have been active in the transfer market, also signing Wojciech Szczesny, Juan Cuadrado, Medhi Benatia and Douglas Costa.
