Kwadwo Asamoah has become the second Ghanaian player to play for Juventus

Italian giants Juventus have finally completed the signing of talented Ghana midfielder Kwadwo Asamoah, GHANAsoccernet.com can reveal.

The Italian champions sealed a three-year deal with the Udinese player on Monday on night in a deal worth US$11m.

Juventus confirmed the double signing of Udinese midfielders Mauricio Isla and Asamoah, both on co-ownership agreements.

“Juventus and Udinese have signed a player sharing agreement related to Kwadwo Asamoah for a consideration of € 9 million to be paid by Udinese in 3 years,” a statement from Juventus read.

Terms for such a deal were reached a few weeks ago, with both versatile midfielders then soon after having medicals in Turin.

But the move delayed because of long drawn-out negotiations with Udinese over his transfer sum and terms of agreement.

The Bianconeri have now confirmed both players’ arrivals at the club, with the finer points to the transfers.

For 50 per cent of 24-year-old Isla’s contract, Juve have paid $11.5m, whilst 50 per cent of 23-year-old Asamoah’s registration has cost them $11m.

Also as part of the deal, youngster Cristian Pasquato has moved in the opposite direction on a co-ownership basis, for a fee of $2.3m.

Asamoah is the second Ghanaian to play for the Old Lady, after Stephen Appiah.

The midfielder, a key member of the Udinese side that finished third in Serie A this campaign, attracted interest from around Europe including clubs like Manchester United.

However, Juventus have stolen a march on their rivals in the chase for the signature of the Ghanaian player.

He scored three goals in 31 league appearances to help his team finish third in Serie A.

    I’M HAPPY 4 YOU ASAMOAH, GO HIGH AND PLAY UR PART

  2. Adebayo says:

    GSN is confusing us with the cost of the transaction by quoting figures in Euro and US dollars. The total cost of the transfer of Asamoah is Euro 18million or roughly US$ 22.7million. For details cf calciomercato.com

  3. Al says:

    i do nott understand why udinese did not accept Man Utd’s offer which was 12 mil bu they accept juventus’ offer which is only 9 mil. i wish he had went to Man U instead cuz they are in bad need of a midfielder and he would have had a great chance of starting but nonetheless i wish him luck. maybe he’ll get to play his actual position in the BS instead of left wing which is very stupid.
