Juventus manager Antonio Conte says that Pablo Osvaldo took a pay-cut to join the club and will be an important addition to the first team.

Juventus manager Antonio Conte has said that Pablo Osvaldo will improve the quality of the team's attack.

The 28-year-old has joined the Italian champions on loan from Southampton until the end of the season, and Conte believes that the striker will prove to be an important part of the first team at the Bianconeri.

"We grabbed an opportunity to sign him," Conte told Sky Sport Italia.

"The player really wanted to come to Juventus and actually significantly reduced his demands to secure the move.

"He'll improve the quality of our attack and offer important competition to those already here."

Juventus are currently top of the Serie A table and lead second-place Roma by nine points.
