Former Chelsea Women forward Eniola Aluko has signed for Italian champions Juventus Women.

The 31-year-old, who has 102 England caps, joins Juve having spent the past six years at English champions Chelsea, following an earlier spell with them between 2007 and 2009.

Aluko announced last month she would leave the Blues at the end of the 2017-18 campaign.

She scored seven goals in all competitions last season as Chelsea capped a domestic double by going unbeaten in the Women's Super League and winning the FA Cup. They also reached the semi-finals of the Champions League.

Juventus only formed their women's senior team last year but won the Serie A title in their debut season and will compete in next season's Champions League.
