Juventus have confirmed the transfer of Simone Zaza from Sassuolo in a deal worth €18m.

Juve originally purchased Zaza for €3.5m in 2013 before selling him back to Sassuolo for €7.5m while retaining a buy-back option on the striker for €18 million by 30 June 2016.

Both clubs confirmed the deal earlier today with the Bianconeri set to pay €18m in instalments spread over the next three years, while Zaza will sign a five-year contract.

24-year-old Zaza has scored 50 goals in a seven year career in a total of 132 appearances.
