Paulo Dybala has signed for Roma on a free transfer following his departure from Serie A rivals Juventus at the end of last season.
Striker Dybala moves to the Italian capital on a three-year deal following the completion of a medical.
“The club is delighted to confirm the signing of the world-renowned forward!” Roma wrote in a tweet confirming the signing.
The Argentina international moved to Juve from Palermo in 2015, and scored 115 goals in 293 appearances for the club.
Dybala, 28, also helped the club to five Serie A titles and four Coppa Italia wins.
Following his exit from the Turin club, Dybala had been linked with moves to the likes of Inter Milan and Manchester United but opted for Roma where he will link up with manager Jose Mourinho.
Roma, who won the inaugural Europa Conference League last season, add Dybala to a team hoping to improve on last season’s sixth-place finish.

Dybala to the club’s official website said:
The days that led me to this signing were a combination of many emotions: the determination and the speed with which Roma showed they wanted me made the difference.
I am joining a growing team, with a club that continues to lay ever more solid foundations for the future and a coach, José Mourinho, with whom it is a privilege to be able to work.
As an opponent, I admired the atmosphere that the Giallorossi fans create, I can’t wait to greet them with the Roma shirt on.
