Juventus has completed the signing of Genoa midfielder Tomas Rincon for an initial fee of € 8million. Rincon is set to become the first Venezuelan to play for Juve, after agreeing a deal until June 2020.

The fee could rise by a further €1m based on conditions agreed within his contract. The 28-year-old joined Genoa from Hamburg in 2014 and has made 78 appearances in Serie A, scoring three goals.

He could be in line to make his debut when Juve return from their mid-season break at home to Bologna on Sunday. Juve was heavily linked with bringing Axel Witsel to Turin from Zenit during the January transfer window, but the Belgium international has opted instead for a move to the Chinese Super League with Tianjin Quanjian reported to be his likely destination.
