Juventus have completed the €18million signing of Sassuolo striker Simone Zaza on a five-year deal.
Italy international Zaza was formerly co-owned by Juve until Sassuolo bought out the Serie A champions’ share in June 2014.
However, Juve inserted a buy-back clause as part of the deal and they will pay the transfer fee instalments over the next three years.
Zaza pens a five-year contract at the Juventus Stadium and he joins fellow striker Mario Mandzukic in moving to the Turin club during the close-season.
Head coach Massimiliano Allegri – who signed a one-year contract extension on Monday – has been busy reshaping his forward line to offset the loss of Carlos Tevez, who has returned to Boca Juniors.
Zaza, who has won five international caps, impressed in Serie A last season, scoring 11 goals in 31 appearances for a Sassuolo side that finished 12th.
