In an unprecedented move, Juventus have signed Arsenal’s Arteta and Juventus defender Pirlo for the next season.
The deal is a big coup for the Italian champions, who will have a new captain and captain in Arteta.
The 23-year-old played a big part in Juventus’ title success in 2017-18, helping the club to their first European title since 1986.
Arteta will wear the number 9 shirt and the team are expected to wear blue, white and red colours this season.
Arteta has already signed a three-year deal, with a €6m release clause, which is the highest in the Serie A. It will keep him at the club until 2019.
The defender, who was capped twice by Spain, will join the reigning Serie A champions on a free transfer from Manchester City, who have agreed a €1.2m release fee.
“Arteta is a player that can help us win the league title,” said Juve sporting director Filippo Inzaghi.
“I want him to contribute to our title defence.
We’ll be happy to have him on board.”
Arteta made his debut for Juve in November 2016, coming on as a late substitute in the 4-2 Champions League defeat to Borussia Dortmund.
He has also featured in three Champions League matches this season, making two assists and three clearances.
The Argentina international has also made 26 Serie A appearances for Juventus, scoring once.
