It was only a formality, but Parma have officially signed Manuel Alejandro Arteaga from Zulic FC.
The Venezualan striker passed his medical today and put pen to paper on a loan deal with option to buy at the end of the season.
Arteaga is only 18 years old, but has already impressed enough to make this switch to Serie A.
He has played for Venezuela at Under-17, Under-20 and senior level.
Arteaga was on trial with Liverpool and Fiorentina in 2011, but they did not take up their options.
