Juve sign Gabbiadini, loan him to Bologna
Juventus have completed the signing of striker Manolo Gabbiadini after agreeing a co-ownership deal with Atalanta.
The 20-year-old, who made his international debut for Italy against England last week, has subsequently joined Bologna on loan for the 2012/13 season.
As part of the deal, La Vecchia Signora have allowed Australian midfielder James Troisi, 24, to represent Atalanta for the coming season in a similar co-ownership arrangement.
Troisi passed a medical with Juventus yesterday to complete his transfer from Turkish club Kayserispor.
Gabbiadini later told Bologna's official website: "It will be a difficult season but the early indications are promising. I left Bergamo because I thought moving far away from home would help me to grow.
"I chose Bologna because I like the players here and they all said good things about (Stefano) Pioli. I want to emulate the greats and the one I watch the most is (Diego) Milito."
