Lecce have officially signed Genoa striker Gianluca Lapadula on loan with option to buy at the end of the season.
The centre-forward had been purchased from Milan in 2017 for a total of €11.25m.
He scored eight goals in 38 competitive games over his two seasons at Marassi.
It’s reported Genoa will continue to pay half of Lapadula’s €1.5m salary during the loan spell.
Lapadula follows teammate Luca Rossettini to newly-promoted Lecce, whose Coach is Fabio Liverani.
