Newly promoted Verona have confirmed the capture of Ezequiel Cirigliano from Argentine side River Plate.
The 21-year-old has joined the Stadio Bentegodi outfit on a loan deal, but Verona have the option to sign him outright at the end of the season.
The midfielder will be presented to the media this afternoon.
Cirigliano, an Argentine youth international, has been likened to compatriot Javier Mascherano in the past.
