New Juventus signing Dusan Vlahovic admits he chose the Bianconeri ahead of major foreign offers.
The former Fiorentina striker was unveiled today by Juve.
He declared: “I am excited and proud to have signed with Juve, a glorious club. I am ready to give my all for great results. I thank the president and all the people who brought me here.
“There was talk of many foreign teams, but the choice was easy. In Juve's DNA there is the fight to the last, the suffering to win until the end and this is part of my character. This is why the choice is not difficult."
On the number 7 shirt, the Serb continued: "Honestly it doesn't represent anything for me, certainly all the numbers in Juve are very important but honestly I chose it because it was the closest to 9.
"First of all, I want to settle into the schemes as soon as possible, get to know my teammates, above all create a friendship. I would use a slightly heavier, familiar word. Even with all the staff, the management, all those who work at Juve. It is a fundamental step for the locker room to reach important goals. Having good relations with everyone.
"Juve is the biggest club in Italy. I am delighted to be here, the desire to aim higher and never give up. I think this is the most important thing and for this I am very happy to be here."
