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.

A statement on juventus.com read: "Juventus and Atalanta have agreed to a co-ownership deal that will see the Bianconeri loan Gabbiadini to Bologna until June 30, 2013."

As part of the deal, La Vecchia 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 Juve yesterday to complete his transfer from Turkish club Kayserispor.
