Genoa sign Immobile and Carvalho

Genoa have announced they’ve paid €4m for half of Under-21 international Ciro Immobile and signed Brazilian Roger Carvalho.

“Today at 14.00 we bought out half of Immobile’s contract from Juventus for €4m,” said President Enrico Preziosi.

Immobile is an Under-21 international striker and currently the Serie B Capocannoniere with 16 goals for Pescara.

He turns 22 next month and has also played on loan at Siena and Grosseto since graduating from the Juventus youth academy in 2010.

“We have decided to discuss Boakye with the Bianconeri in June. Meanwhile, we’ve already signed Brazilian defender Roger Carvalho, who is undergoing his medical right now.”

Carvalho is a 25-year-old centre-back owned by Figueirense who had also been tracked by Tottenham and Shakhtar Donetsk.
