Kwadwo Asamoah has welcomed Carlos Tevez and Fernando Llorente

Kwadwo Asamoah has hailed new additions – Carlos Tevez and Fernando Llorente to the side ahead of the start of the new season.

Back in January the club splashed the cash to seal a summer time move for 27-year-old Spanish forward Fernando Llorente Torres and Argentine international Carlos Tevez.

Torres who joined from Athletic Bilbao, is a stark opposite to the type of player that Tevez is, but their two different attacking styles and their combined set of skills opens up a world of potential for Juventus' offense next campaign.

The Ghanaian international, who featured 27 times for the Old Ladies last term is confident their capture will make the team stronger.

"We've brought in three excellent signings and if we work well together, without ever giving in, we'll be able to enjoy a good season," Asamoah said

"We're working hard in pre-season and it's inevitable you'll feel an element of fatigue but we knew that already after last year.

"After all, this is precisely where our strength comes from; the hard work we put in during training.

"We'll give our all to do well in both Serie A and the Champions League, without forgetting our first target, the Italian Super Cup (against Lazio on 18 August)."

Asamoah is expected to play another key role for Juventus as they aim for their third successive title.
