Lecce to snap up Genoa pair

Lecce are close to a double deal for Genoa pair Luca Rossettini and Gianluca Lapadula.

Sportitalia and Tuttomercatoweb both report the moves are in the ‘final’ stages of completion.

Pedula writes Rossettini will sign a two-year contract with Lecce, while Lapadula will arrive on loan with an option to buy.

Rossettini is a 34-year-old defender, who has made over 300 appearances for the likes of Cagliari, Bologna, Torino and Genoa.

He spent last season on loan at Chievo as they were relegated from Serie A.

As for Lapadula, the striker was dropped for much of the previous campaign by Genoa, despite them forking out €11m to make his loan deal permanent last summer.
