Richmond Boakye-Yiadom ready for the test at Juventus

Juventus-bound Richmond Boakye-Yiadom says he is unfazed by the challenge of playing for a big club.

The Italian champions announced on Thursday they have reached a deal with Genoa to sign the 18-year-old subject to him passing a medical.

Boakye spent last season on loan at Serie B side Sassuolo where he hugely impressed.

He scored nine goals to help the club advance to the semi-final of the promotional play-offs.

Boakye will leave for Italy next week with his agent Oliver Arthur to finalize the deal.

The Ghana youth international told Sunyani-based Storm FM: ?It is always a dream come true for every footballer to move to a big club like Juventus.

?I cannot wait to get it started with them because that has always been my ambition so I would be happy.?

He becomes the second Ghanaian player to move to the Turin-based club this summer after Kwadwo Asamoah signed from Udinese.
