Juventus have signed Denmark
striker Nicklas Bendtner on a season-long loan from Arsenal.
"The club has reached an agreement with Arsenal for the loan
signing with an option to buy," the Italian team said on their
website on Friday.
Juve have the option of buying the player for six million
euros at the end of the loan deal.
Bendtner, 24, scored eight goals in 28 league appearances on
loan at Arsenal's Premier League rivals Sunderland last season.
Managing director Beppe Marotta said Bendtner would be the
Serie A club's final signing in this transfer window.
"Bendtner isn't the top player we were looking for but in a
difficult transfer market like this one it was an opportunity
that we took," Marotta told the Mediaset TV channel.
The Dane is expected to lineup for Juve on Sunday when they
travel to Udinese.
