Stadio Dall’Ara outfit Bologna have confirmed the capture of goalkeeper Gianluca Curci from Roma.
The 27-year-old has been signed on a one-season loan deal, with an option to be netted outright next summer.
“I’m starting a new adventure in which I will give the very best of myself,” the former Italian Under-21 international stated.
Bologna needed a new custodian after opting to sell Jean Francois Gillet to newly promoted Torino.
Curci, who will have to do battle with Federico Agliardi for the gloves, spent last season as a reserve at Roma following loan spells at Siena and Sampdoria.
