And the striker has admitted that he can’t wait to play for a club ‘with a winning mentality’.

“Prandelli really wanted me to come here,” he told a Press conference. “So I can’t not be happy to be here.

“It’s a pleasure to play for this club. I had a great feeling as soon as I arrived. I’ve come to a team with a winning mentality – and that’s important.

“I know Muslera, who I played with at Lazio, and I know Sneijder, who was my teammate at Inter.

“I’ve come here with a specific goal, and that’s to win everything possible.”
