As per the club’s official website, Italian giants Juventus have completed the signing of highly-rated striker Simone Zaza from Sassuolo for a fee of £12.8 million.
The 24-year-old star had long been linked with a move away from the club with a switch to the Premier League heavily mooted during the January transfer window.
However, talks of Zaza moving to White Hart Lane quietened ahead of the summer and the striker has instead opted to join Serie A champions Juventus, signing a five-year contract on Tuesday afternoon.
What are Tottenham Hotspur missing out on?
Simone Zaza is a hardworking centre-forward, capable of playing the target-man role and would arguably have been a solid alternative for Spurs striker Harry Kane.
Last season, he notched 11 goals and added two assists in 29 Serie A starts, a moderate effort considering his side were in a relegation battle until a fabulous late-season run of form.
