Genoa have officially signed Chile international Mauricio Pinilla on loan from Atalanta with obligation to buy.
The striker has already passed a medical and began training with his new teammates today.
“Atalanta BC announce the transfer to Genoa, on loan with obligation to buy, of the player Mauricio Pinilla,” read a statement.
“The club thanks Mauricio and wishes him the best personal and professional success.”
Pinilla turns 33 next month and is making a return to his former club, having left for Atalanta in January 2015.
He has effectively replaced Leonardo Pavoletti, who Genoa sold to Napoli this week.
