The Swedish Under-19 international striker has been targeted by a number of clubs during the summer, including Dutch giants Feyenoord and Premiership Southampton.
Saints apparently made an offer for the player, but the youngster was delighted to have finally made the switch to the Serie A side.
He told Swedish newspaper DN: "I am very pleased and tremendously motivated. The directors have said that I will get a place in the A squad.
"My big target is to get a chance in the A side this season and to get to play a Serie A or cup match - that would be great.
"The dream is to take a place in the attack alongside a great player like Roberto Muzzi.
"My childhood dream was to become a professional. I am there now. I have not been nervous but it is exciting and a big challenge."
