It's reported Novara will sign Japanese international Takayuki Morimoto from Catania on Monday.
The Serie A newcomers have been busy on the transfer market to strengthen their squad after winning the promotion play-offs.
Morimoto would represent a very sound investment both in sporting terms and financially, as he brings with him many fans and interest from Japanese media.
Catania have struggled to find much playing time for the striker, but look ready to sell half his contract to Novara.
According to the Gazzetta dello Sport, ‘Taka' will put pen to paper on the co-ownership deal on Monday.
