Juventus midfielder Emanuele Blasi has moved to Fiorentina on a one-year loan deal.

The 26-year-old midfielder has joined the Florence outfit because resources at the club will be stretched should they put together a strong UEFA Champions League run, as anticipated.

While contracted until 2009 at the Stadio Delle Alpi, Blasi was mainly a fringe member of the Juve squad last term but should feature more prominently for Fiorentina.

He has been capped eight times for Italy, and will bolster mainstays Stefano Fiore and Danish international Martin Jorgensen in the centre of the park.

But the investigations into match-fixing allegations at both clubs could scupper the player's future, should the Stadio Artemio Franchi outfit be punished by losing out on European football.

The results of the sports tribunal's probe are set to be announced between July 7 and July 9.

Meanwhile Juve have captured the signature of 25-year-old Parma midfielder Marco Marchionni on a Bosman free transfer.

They have renewed the contracts of co-owned players Matteo Cavagna from Ravenna, Genoa's Domenico Criscito and Antonio Nocerino and Siena's Daniele Gastaldello and Cristian Molinaro.

And Bianconeri have also agreed joint stakes with Rimini for Marco Brighi, Palermo for Andrea Gasbarroni, Siena for Matteo Paro and Reggina for Felice Piccolo.
