Official: Genoa pick up Marchetti

Genoa have officially signed former Italy goalkeeper Federico Marchetti from Lazio.

Lega Serie A’s official website initially reported Marchetti had joined Cagliari, but Tuttomercatoweb assures it was a mistake on the organisation’s part.

Indeed, Transfermarkt notes the shot-stopper has penned a two-year contract with the Grifone, replacing Mattia Perin, who joined Juventus last month.

The 35-year-old made 194 appearances for Lazio but lost his place to Thomas Strakosha and filled in for Gianluigi Buffon at the 2010 World Cup.
