(Reuters) - Juventus goalkeeper Emil Audero has officially joined Serie A rivals Sampdoria for 20 million euros (17 million pounds) after completing a successful loan spell with the Genoa club.
Italian champions Juventus said on Tuesday that the transfer fee for Audero will be paid by their Serie A rivals over the next four years.
The Juventus youth product joined Sampdoria at the start of the season after a one-year loan at Italian second-tier club Venezia.
The 22-year-old Audero has made 25 league appearances so far this season.
Sampdoria, 10th in the standings, face SPAL on Sunday.
