Boakye joins Juventus squad

Juventus have brought in a new striker, as Richmond Boakye joined the side after his loan spell at Sassuolo.

The transfer gossip has surrounded the extra forward set to be signed this summer after Carlos Tevez and Fernando Llorente, as both Alessandro Matri and Fabio Quagliarella are on the market.

However, it’s possible Antonio Conte has found the solution in-house, as today 20-year-old Boakye began training with the senior squad.

Boakye was late to pre-season training because, like Paul Pogba, he attended the Under-20 World Cup.

The Ghanaian talent spent last season on loan at Sassuolo, scoring 11 Serie B goals in 32 games and providing seven assists on their way to an historic promotion.

Boakye had been expected to go out on loan again, but it’s now reported he could remain as part of the senior Juventus squad for 2013-14.
