“In addition to his goals, Manuel is an absolute quality and security in midfield, bringing a level of class that few have,” Juve said.
“The giant steps he has made in the top flight, after a period at Atalanta and Milan’s youth teams, only confirms this.”
He will join his Euro 2020 teammates Leonardo Bonucci, Giorgio Chiellini, Federico Chiesa and Federico Bernardeschi at the Allianz Stadium.
Juventus saw their run of nine successive Serie A titles ended last season by Inter Milan.
But they are hoping to hit back under returning coach Massimiliano Allegri, who won five straight Serie A crowns from 2015-2019 with Juve.
The ‘Old Lady’ were also given a boost on Tuesday when Cristiano Ronaldo blasted reports claiming he could return to Real Madrid.
Locatelli could make his Juve debut at Udinese on Sunday in their first league game of the season.
He impressed in Italy’s opening two matches of Euro 2020, but did not start again after making way when Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Marco Verratti returned from injury.
