Kwadwo Asamoah undergoes Juve medicals
Ghana midfielder Kwadwo Asamoah has arrived in Turin to complete a move to Italian side Juventus, SuperSport.com can confirm.
Asamoah had tweeted on Tuesday morning: "I am in Ghana now. Flying again tonight back to Europe and hopefully sort things out." On Thursday morning, pictures of him surfaced on the social networking site, Twitter, showing him being led by Juve officials to finalize the deal.
Now 23, Asamoah rebuffed offers from Manchester United for the Serie A champions. He has been on contract with Udinese until June 2015. He has been an integral cog of the Udinese team that has done so well in the league in the past few years. They finished third last season and will play in Europe again.
He scored three goals in 31 league appearances last season and had been in Ghana for a brief stop after being part of the Ghana side that lost 1-0 to Zambia in the World Cup qualifier on Saturday.
Udinese have a history of getting players for cheap and selling them for hundreds times their cost of investment.
