Juventus signs 20-year-old Riccardo Orsolini


20-year-old Serie B standout Riccardo Orsolini has officially signed for Juventus in a deal worth €10 million. 

The midfielder, who has four goals to his name so far this season, will join the Italian giants at the end of 2016-17 after finishing the campaign with current side Ascoli on loan.

Orsolini says he is focused on becoming a complete footballer before making the step up into the Bianconeri squad.

“Hard work always pays off, and if I put the work in here I’ll get to where I want to be,” Orsolini told the official Juventus  website.

“I’m a natural winger and I usually play from the right and cut in on my left foot to either score or setup a teammate.

“I definitely need to improve defensively and that’s something I’m already working on at Ascoli. I’m always looking to grow, and I’m excited for whatever the future holds here.

“I’ll continue what I’ve started at Ascoli and look to achieve the targets we set ourselves at the start of the season, and from June onwards I’ll begin this new adventure here and I hope it will be a successful one.”

Juventus currently sits four points ahead of AS Roma at the top of the Serie a table.
