Orsolini to continue at Ascoli after Juve switch

Juventus’ latest signing Riccardo Orsolini says he is ready to continue his rapid development after agreeing a € 6million switch from Serie B side Ascoli.

The left-footed winger is set to remain in the Italian second-tier for the remainder of the season before joining up with the Serie A Champions in the off-season, where he has signed a five-year deal.

With four goals and as many assists in 22 games across all competitions the Bianconeri were prompted to act early in securing one of the country's brightest talents.

"Hard work always pays off, and if I put the work in here I'll get to where I want to be," the 20-year-old told the club's official website.

"I'm a natural winger and I usually play from the right and cut in on my left foot to either score or setup a teammate.

"I definitely need to improve defensively and that's something I'm already working on at Ascoli. I'm always looking to grow, and I'm excited for whatever the future holds here.

"I'll continue what I've started at Ascoli and look to achieve the targets we set ourselves at the start of the season, and from June onwards I'll begin this new adventure here and I hope it will be a successful one."

The price of Orsolini may increase by €4 million "on achieving given conditions in the course of the duration of the contract", part of a club statement read.
