This report is according to the Mirror, who claims the 21-year-old forward has completed his move to the Old Lady from Palermo for £23.4 million, with the Turin club confirming his switch officially.
The Argentine star made 90 appearances for Palermo and scored 13 goals for them in the just concluded season before signing a five-year deal with the Italian champions.

“I will not talk about players from other clubs.”
