Official: Spal sign Petagna

Spal have officially confirmed the signing of Andrea Petagna from Atalanta, on loan with an obligation to buy “under certain conditions”.

The striker was a regular in Gian Piero Gasperini’s side last season, but the arrival of Duvan Zapata left him surplus to requirements.

“Spal 2013 announces the signing, on loan with an obligation to buy under certain conditions, of the striker Andrea Petagna from the club Atalanta Bergamasca Calcio,” a statement on the club’s official website confirms.

“Andrea is the nephew of Francesco Petagna, the historic Biancazzurro Coach of the legendary President Paolo Mazza, who sat on the bench for five consecutive seasons in Ferrara, of which three were in Serie A between 1964 and 1969.”
