Sevilla sell Dane Poulsen to Juventus

Juventus coach Claudio Ranieri claims the arrival of Christian Poulsen from Sevilla will complete the club's pursuit of outfield players in the summer transfer market.

The Denmark midfielder became the Bianconeri's eighth summer signing when he penned a four-year contract on Monday.

Ranieri had hoped to lure Liverpool midfielder Xabi Alonso to Turin but negotiations between the clubs did not prove fruitful.

The Juve tactician is nevertheless pleased with his close-season acquisitions.

'We are only missing a goalkeeper,' said Ranieri.

'I am delighted with the result of the transfer market and I thank the club for giving me a good team.'

The Bianconeri, who finished third in Serie A last season, have strengthened their squad with the signings of Brazilian forward Amauri from Palermo and defender Olof Mellberg from Aston Villa.

Juve can now focus on the Champions League preliminary round.

'I have asked two players per position and I have received what I wanted, now we must work and push hard,' said Ranieri.

'With the new acquisition (Poulsen), we will have quality in midfield.

'Whoever is not convinced at Poulsen's characteristics, they will have to believe it.'

The 28-year-old joins the Serie A club on a 9.75 million euros transfer deal after playing two seasons in the Primera Liga.

Poulsen will be formally introduced later in the week but has already expressed his delight at joining the Italian giants.

'I cannot wait to begin my adventure with Juventus,' he said. 'I know I will be able to earn the confidence of my new fans.'

Juve's decision to sign Poulsen was received with mixed emotions by Juve fans, as the player is remembered for the controversy that struck Italy in Euro 2004.

Poulsen was spat on by Italy's Francesco Totti during the sides' 0-0 result, an incident which was captured by Danish television and which resulted in the Roma playmaker receiving a three-match ban.

'My hope is to pleasantly surprise the Italian public and show that I have a good technique,' Poulsen added. 'I will be able to prove it and to give a different image of myself.'
