TURIN, Italy (AP) - Argentine winger Roberto Pereyra has joined Italian champion Juventus in a 1.5 million euros ($2 million) loan from Udinese.

Juventus says the deal also gives it the option to purchase Pereyra’s full rights at the end of the upcoming season for 14 million euros - although the price could rise to 15.5 million euros depending on Juve’s success rate over the next six seasons.

The 23-year-old Pereyra, who can play on the left wing in either defense or attack, was a regular starter for Udinese for the past two seasons.

With Massimiliano Allegri having taken over as Juve manager after Antonio Conte’s sudden departure this month, the three-time defending champion has also signed Patrice Evra from Manchester United and Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid.
