Juventus have signed Italy midfielder Manuel Locatelli from Sassuolo.

The 23-year-old had been linked with Arsenal after playing his part in Italy's Euro 2020 success this summer.

Locatelli has joined Juventus on an initial two-year loan, with the Turin club holding an obligation to purchase the player for €25 million, plus €12.5m in potential add-ons.

"Juventus Football Club announces that an agreement with US Sassuolo Calcio for the free temporary acquisition, until 30 June 2023, of the registration rights of the player Manuel Locatelli has been finalised," said a club statement.

"The agreement entails the obligation for Juventus to definitely acquire the player's registrations rights, subject to the achievement of certain given sporting objectives by the end of the season 2022-2023.

"The agreed consideration for the definitive acquisition is 25million euros, payable in three years.

"Furthermore, a maximum of 12.5 euros million of cumulative bonuses are envisaged upon achievement of further sporting performance objectives."

Locatelli scored twice in Italy's 3-0 group-stage win against Switzerland at Euro 2020 and was an extra-time substitute as the Azzurri beat England on penalties in the final.
