North Korean signs with Juventus

The North Korean forward Han Kwang-song who we wrote about back in February 2018 as now signed with the Italian giants Juventus. As the 20-year-old moves on an initial loan from Cagliari for two seasons, it is expected it will be made permanent after this. 

On the radar 

As we reported back in February 2018, Juventus and a host of big clubs have been interested in the forward for some time. The player as finally got his move to one of Europes biggest clubs were he will join their Under 23 side in Serie C.

Song joined on the European transfer window deadline day and does so after gaining experience in Italy's top flight. This is seen with the Pyongyang born player picking up 12 appearances for previous club Cagliari.

Meanwhile, he had to loan spells in Serie B with Perugia in this time he played 39 times for the club. His form here clearly didn't go unnoticed by the scouts at Juventus, and it is expected despite him playing with the Under 23s he will at times train with the first team.

Sarri is keen 

It is understood that the Juventus manager Sarri is a big fan of the reportedly £3.5million signing. Now time will tell if the player can impress at the highest level.
