TURIN, Italy (AP) - Italian champion Juventus says it has signed Argentina striker Gonzalo Higuain from Serie A rival Napoli for 90 million euros ($99 million).

Juventus said in a statement Tuesday that the 28-year-old Higuain has signed a five-year contract with the Turin club and that the transfer fee would be paid over a two-year period.

Higuain joined Napoli from Real Madrid in 2013 and went on to score 71 goals in 104 matches in Serie A for the southern club.

His 36 goals last season helped Napoli finish second behind Juventus.
