Eniola Aluko joins Italian giants Juventus

England international Eniola Aluko has opted to depart Chelsea after six years at the club, and has signed with Italian champions Juventus.

The 31-year-old told the 'BBC', that despite having the option to renew her contract with the Blues, she felt it was the right time to ''do something different.''

Aluko posted the announcement on social media platform Twitter and wrote: ''Delighted and honoured to join a club with an overwhelming history, ambition and success.''

She added: ''So proud to hold the shirt worn by an endless list of legends. I can't wait to get started.''

 

 

Juventus claimed their first Serie A title last season, and Aluko will be joining her fellow England youth international Katie Zelem over in Turin.

The forward has scored 33 goals in 102 appearances at international level, but after becoming involved in a discrimination case against former England boss Mark Sampson, Aluko hadn't played for England.

Sampson was subsequently sacked for ''inappropriate and unacceptable'' behaviour with female players in former role, and the Lionesses top job vacancy was filled by ex-Manchester United defender Phil Neville.

Aluko told the 'BBC': ''I'm very happy with my England career to date both on and off the pitch and if I get a recall, amazing. If I don't then I'll continue to support his project and the England team.''
