MILAN - Juventus continued their massive
recruitment drive by taking Arsenal's French left-back Armand
Traore and Napoli defender Leandro Rinaudo on season-long loans
on transfer deadline day on Tuesday.
"Freshness, physical strength and technique in abundance:
the left side of Juventus has been enriched with quality thanks
to the arrival of Armand Traore from Arsenal," a Juve statement
said about the 20-year-old.
A second statement announced 27-year-old Rinaudo's arrival.
Twice European champions Juve brought in 10 players during
the transfer window as they look to recover from last term's
dismal seventh-place finish in Serie A, although efforts to
offload left back Fabio Grosso look to have been unsuccessful.
French defender Jonathan Zebina left for Bresciar on Tuesday
and Mauro Camoranesi joined VfB Stuttgart.
Juve's new-look squad negotiated the Europa League
qualifiers to make the competition proper but lost 1-0 at Bari
in their opening Serie A game on Sunday.
