Cerci joins Verona on free after Atleti

Italian club Verona have completed the signing of Alessio Cerci following his release from Atletico Madrid, it has been confirmed.

Cerci has reportedly penned a one-year deal with the Serie A newboys, who have also completed the signing of another former Italian international striker – Antonio Cassano.

The 30-year-old joined Atleti from Torino in the summer of 2014 for €15m but played just 11 times for Los Rojiblancos in a three-year spell that included loan spells at Milan and Genoa.

Having previously won 14 caps for Italy, Cerci’s career stalled following a move to Spain having scored 21 goals between 2012 and 2014 in Serie A for Torino.
