Italian champions Juventus have signed 26-year-old attacking midfielder Miralem Pjanić from Roma for a €32m fee.

"It's always been tough to play here in Turin against such a great team and a great club," said the playmaker after agreeing a five-year contract. "There's a wonderful atmosphere.

"Now I'm a Juventus player, I'm delighted and I hope that for our opponents it will still be very tough to play here. It's a great thrill for me. I hope we'll win together and that the people at Juve will like me."

The Bosnia and Herzegovina international, who scored ten Serie A goals and provided 12 assists in the season just ended, leaves Roma after five campaigns to join Massimiliano Allegri's side. Juve won their fifth straight Scudetto in 2015/16 and will enter the UEFA Champions League group stage.
