"I'm an ambitious person and this represents a great opportunity for me to develop as a player," the defender told reporters on his official presentation.

"I always look at the present and future. I don't consider myself a traitor because I've always underlined the fact that we're professionals.

"I've received more advice than criticism over the past few days."

Ogbonna helped Torino to climb out of Serie B in 2011-12 and establish themselves in the top flight last season.

Born in Italy to Nigerian parents, the 25-year-old has won six caps for Italy and was included in the squad for Euro 2012.

Juventus said he was the 11th player to make the move from Torino.
