IANS  |  Turin 

Record Italian football champions Juventus on Friday announced that young Italian winger Riccardo Orsolini will join Atalanta on a two-year loan deal.

The transfer of the 20-year-old includes an option to buy (for Atalanta) with a counter-option (for Juventus), according to a statement from the Turin giants.

"After catching the eye with Ascoli in Serie B last term, Orsolini can now look forward to testing himself in both Serie A and the Europa League this season," Juventus said in a statement.

The 20-year-old will look to build on a breakthrough U20 World Cup campaign in South Korea this summer in which he scored five times in seven matches to win the competition's Golden Boot.
