The young Italian goalkeeper played on loan for Frosinone in Serie A during the 2015-16 season.

The youngster has been on the books of Juventus since 2012 and has a contract with the Italian giants until June 2019, according to Transfermarkt.co.uk.

Villa got relegated from the Premier League at the end of the 2015-16 campaign. The Villans will feature in the Championship next season and will be aiming to finish in the top two.

It will be hard for the Villans to gain automatic promotion, though, as there are a number of big clubs in the division, such as Newcastle United, Derby County and Sheffield Wednesday.

Villa have a new manager in charge, Roberto Di Matteo, who has Championship experience with West Bromwich Albion.
