Gagliardini, who was on international duty at an Under-21 training camp in Rome. is called up as a replacement for Claudio Marchisio, who was withdrawn after 19 minutes of Wednesday's friendly win over Uruguay.
Juventus confirmed on Thursday that Marchisio has undergone tests that uncovered a mild groin strain in his right leg, leading to his departure from the national squad.
Giampiero Ventura is already without the services of Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Marco Verratti through injury, with Italy are level on points with Spain at the top of Group G after five matches.
