Parma have officially signed Udinese left-back Giuseppe Pezzella on loan with obligation to buy for €4.5m.
Pezzella’s move comes as no surprise, with links between him and Parma first surfacing over a month ago.
The 21-year-old spent the second half of last season on loan at Genoa.
However, he played just five Serie A games and the Grifone subsequently passed up their €7m option to buy.
The Italy Under-21 international has committed himself to the Gialloblu until 2024.
