Juventus have signed Antonio Candreva on loan from Udinese until the end of the season, the Turin outfit confirmed.
The 22-year-old midfielder, who has spent the past year and a half on loan at Livorno, was at the top of Juve's list of transfer targets. Juve will have the option to make Candreva's move permanent in the summer.
"Juventus and Udinese have reached an agreement for the transfer of Antonio Candreva to the Bianconeri until the end of the season,'' read a statement from the club.
"The player will join on loan but the club have the right to buy half of the player's sporting rights.''
Candreva has made 52 appearances for Livorno since joining the Amaranto outfit on loan from Udinese in the summer of 2008. The Italy international could make his Juve debut in Saturday's Serie A match against Roma in Turin.
