Genoa have officially signed Italo-Brazilian midfielder Romulo from Verona on a free transfer.
A statement on Genoa’s official website confirms Romulo, who can also play anywhere down the right, has already begun training with his new teammates.
The 31-year-old shot to prominence in 2014, when he was called up to Italy’s provisional squad for the World Cup in Brazil after a breakthrough campaign with Verona.
That was followed by a move to Juventus, but injuries prevented him from earning a place in the Azzurri’s 23-man cut and led to the Bianconeri passing up their purchase option.
Nonetheless, he has bounced back over the last two seasons and will continue his career in Liguria.
