Juventus have completed the signing of Italy striker Vincenzo Iaquinta from Udinese on a five-year deal.

The 27-year-old, who scored 14 top flight goals last season, has moved for 11.3 million euros.

“I have grown up year-on-year and after seven seasons in Udine the moment has arrived to make a jump of quality in order to test myself with a challenge that only a great club like Juventus can offer,” the striker said in a statement.

“I believe that I am the right age to realise this dream. I like pressure and I cannot wait to start this new adventure.”

Iaquinta’s arrival may prompt the departure of France striker David Trezeguet as Juve rebuild for life back in Serie A.
