Spal have officially signed midfielder Alberto Grassi on loan from Napoli with option to buy and a counter-option.
The 22-year-old came up through the Atalanta youth academy and made his mark with the Orobici.
After earning a transfer to Napoli for €8m in January 2016, he barely featured due to injury problems, and was loaned back to Atalanta last season.
Today he has formally been loaned to Serie A new boys Spal with an option to buy at the end of the season.
Napoli also retained a buy-back option on the Italy Under-21 international.
