Juventus have signed their long-time target Federico Chiesa from Fiorentina on a two-year loan deal, which includes an obligation to buy.

It will cost Juventus €3m (£2.7m) in the first year and €7m (£6.35m) for the second year, according to reports in Italy. Also, exercising the obligation to buy will cost a further €40m (£36.3m) and further bonuses could take the total cost of the transfer to €60m (£54.4m).

Should Juventus finish in the top four in Serie A, Chiesa plays 60 percent of games for at least 30 minutes or scores 10 goals and 10 assists over the course of two years, the obligation to buy at the end of the loan is automatically triggered.

Fiorentina chief executive officer, Joe Barone, confirmed in May that several Premier League clubs were interested in the highly-rated 22-year-old.

Chiesa came through the youth system at Fiorentina and has made 153 appearances for the club, scoring 34 times. He also holds 19 caps for the Italian national team.

Earlier in the window, Juventus signed Alvaro Morata on a season-long loan from Atletico Madrid, after a deal for Luis Suarez who eventually joined Atletico Madrid fell through.

The Italian Champions also signed US International Weston McKennie from Schalke in a £4m deal, while Douglas Costa sealed a return to Bayern Munich from Juventus on Transfer Deadline Day.

Meanwhile, Napoli is facing being handed a 3-0 loss by Serie A having failed to turn up for their match at Juventus after their local health authority told players to stay at home when two squad members tested positive for coronavirus.
