Liverpool midfielder Alberto Aquilani has completed his season-long loan move to Juventus with the option of the Serie A side taking the player on a permanent deal for £13million.
The midfielder arrived at Anfield in a £17million deal from Roma 12 months ago but his time on Merseyside has been undermined by injuries and poor form.
Aquilan becomes Juve’s seventh new signing of the summer as they bid to improve on last season’s disappointing campaign.
A Juventus statement read: “Juventus announces that an agreement with Liverpool FC for the free temporary acquisition of the registration rights of the player Alberto Aquilani has been reached.
“The agreement also includes the option right, to be exercised at the end of 2010-2011 season, for the definitive acquisition by Juventus of the football player at the price of £13.1million, to be paid in three years.”
