Juventus have announced they have signed Nicolas Anelka on a six month deal after just a year in China with Shanghai Shenhua.
The 33-year-old striker left Chelsea during the last January transfer window to link up with the Chinese club in what was suppose to be the first of many big signings by teams in the Far East.
While former Blues team mate Didier Drogba joined Anelka in Shanghai a dispute over money has left both players looking for new clubs.
While Drogba's future is still up for debate Anelka has agreed to join Italian champions Juventus on a contract through to the end of the season.
The agreement also includes an option for a renewal until June 2014 if all goes well for the French forward in Turin.
Despite having only just joined the former Arsenal and Real Madrid hitman says he already feels at home and is looking forward to finally plying his trade in Italy.
"I am very proud to wear this shirt. Some of my former teammates have told me what a great place this is – and as soon as I arrived in the locker room, I felt at home," Anelka told the Club's official website.
"Italian football is recognized throughout the world – there are some great players in this League and I know it's a very hard championship to win.
"I am happy to be in Italy at such a large club."
Juventus haven't confirmed whether Anelka will be available to make his debut this weekend against Chievo, a game the Old Lady are 1.61 to win, with the Flying Donkeys 5.50.
Having been playing in China Anelka will be available to represent Juve in the Champions League, meaning he could line-up against Celtic later this month at Parkhead.
Juventus, who are 1.33 to win Serie A, have worked hard to bolster their front line this month and also announced Fernando Llorente would be joining in the summer from Athletic Bilbao.
