Juventus have completed the signing of Angelo Ogbonna from Serie A rivals Torino.


Catch all the movers and shakers from this summer's transfer window.

It was revealed earlier on Thursday that the defender was undergoing a medical in Turin.

He has sailed through the physical examinations and has penned a five-year contract.

Juventus will part with a €13million ($17m) fee for his services, which could rise by a further €2million if certain targets are met and will be paid in instalments over the next three years.

The Italy international will join a side that has secured back-to-back Serie A titles and will be eyeing a hat-trick in 2013/14.

A statement released by Juve on their official website read: "Italian international defender Angelo Ogbonna has today completed a permanent move from Torino to Juventus.

"The 25-year-old, whose impressive performances earned him a place in Cesare Prandelli's European Championship squad last summer, has put pen to paper on a five-year contract which keeps him with the Bianconceri until 2018."
