Argentina international forward Paulo Dybala has joined Italian side AS Roma on a three-year contract following his departure from Juventus.

Dybala, who was linked with a transfer to Serie A side Inter Milan after his deal with Juventus expired, has signed a three-year contract with Roma.

The 28-year-old has signed a three-year contract with Roma that runs until 2025. According to resources, Dybala will earn 4.5 million euros per season with relative bonuses.

Dybala picked up No. 21 jersey in his new club, despite many expecting him to inherit No. 10 which is vacant after legend Francesco Totti retired.

Roma, who won the inaugural Europa Conference League last season, add Dybala to a team hoping to improve on last season's sixth-place finish.

Dybala will become Roma's fourth signing of the transfer window after the arrivals of midfielder Nemanja Matic, goalkeeper Mile Svilar and defender Zeki Celik.

In his seven seasons with Juve, La Joya scored 115 goals and won five Serie A titles.
