Juventus have completed the signing of Italy full-back Mattia De Sciglio from AC Milan.

The Serie A champions, who last week sold their long-serving centre-back Leonardo Bonucci to the ambitious Rossoneri, have secured De Sciglio's services on a five-year contract.

A statement published on Juve's website announced the deal, which follows swiftly after goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny's capture from Arsenal on Wednesday.

Milan-born De Sciglio - comfortable both at right-back and on the left flank - will help fill the gap left by Dani Alves, who recently joined Paris St Germain after a single season in Turin.

Juve this week pulled out of a deal to recruit promising Czech striker Patrik Schick from Sampdoria while reports in Italy have linked the Scudetto holders with a move for Nemanja Matic of Chelsea.
