Palermo have officially beaten Milan and Juventus to the signature of teenage FC Zurich striker Cephas Malele.
The contract was deposited with the Lega Calcio today, ensuring another coup for the Rosanero talent scouts.
Swiss-Congolese 17-year-old Malele was also of interest to some of Europe's top clubs, including Juve and Milan.
President Maurizio Zamparini had hinted at a deal last month, but it was only made official today.
