Former England striker Eni Aluko will leave Juventus at the end of November and return to London to pursue the next move in her career.

Aluko won Serie A, the Coppa Italia and the Supercoppa Italiana in her year and a half in Turin, as well as finishing last season as the club’s top scorer.

Speaking to the Juventus website, Aluko said: “It’s just a matter of feeling like my time in Juventus is complete and fulfilled. On the pitch it’s been a very successful period, winning every trophy that it’s possible to win in Italy, finishing top scorer and appearing in the Champions League.

“I’m excited to be moving back to London, and back into women’s football in England at a time when there are a lot of exciting opportunities.

Aluko also penned an open letter for the Juventus fans, thanking them for her time at the club: “I feel very fortunate to have achieved such success with all of you in my 18 months at the club. It has been amazing to share so many good moments with the players working together on the field, laughing, joking, eating together and joking about my Italian.”
