Aston Villa have completed the double signing of Samuel Iling-Junior and Enzo Barrenechea from Juventus for 22m euros (£18.6m).

The Italian club say English forward Iling-Junior, 20, has joined for a fee of 14m euros (£11.8m) plus 3m euros (£2.5m) in possible add-ons.

Argentine midfielder Barrenechea, 23, has cost 8m euros (£6.7m) plus 3m euros in add-ons.

The pair join a day after Douglas Luiz signed for Juventus from Villa.

The 26-year-old Brazilian signed a five-year deal worth £42.35m.

Iling-Junior was part of Chelsea’s academy before joining Juventus’ youth team and made his senior debut in May 2022.

He scored two goals in 45 appearances for the Turin club and has also featured for the England Under-21 side.

Barrenechea spent a season on loan at fellow Series A side Frosinone in the two years he spent with Juventus.

On Friday, Villa completed the signing of Chelsea left-back Ian Maatsen for £35m, while they have also signed striker Lewis Dobbin from Everton.
