The striker joins for an undisclosed fee from Hellas Verona in a move that is sure to excite fans at Boundary Park.
Davies scored twice against The Latics in the FA Cup last season, as he spent the campaign on loan at Championship side Wolves.
The 21-year-old joined Verona in January 2006 after announcing himself as a promising talent with Oxford United, but Davies has decided to return to England after his career in Serie B failed to catch fire.
Davies' transfer is still subject to international clearance, but Latics boss John Sheridan will already be planning for his new-look strike force with Lee Hughes also set to arrive at the club.
