Chievo clinch Novara's Rigoni

It’s reported Novara star Marco Rigoni will undergo his medical and sign for Chievo on Monday.

The creative midfielder was one of the surprise packages in Serie A last season and many called for his inclusion in the Euro 2012 squad.

He had been close to joining Sampdoria, but Sky Sport Italia claim a deal has now been struck with Chievo.

Rigoni is set to undergo his medical and put pen to paper on a three-year contract tomorrow.

The 32-year-old was a Juventus youth product, but only ever managed one appearance for the senior squad.

He also played for Ravenna, Cittadella, Triestina, Ternana and Pescara before joining Novara in 2009.

Rigoni was a key figure in Novara’s back-to-back promotions from Serie C1 into Serie A.
