Official: Lecce loan Tumminello

Serie B high-fliers Lecce have officially signed Atalanta striker Marco Tumminello on loan for the rest of the season.

Tumminello only joined Atalanta from Roma last summer, with the Giallorossi reportedly retaining two buyback options for the 20-year-old.

However, the former Italy youth international has played just 14 minutes of football across three appearances in Bergamo this season.

He will consequently help Lecce in their bid for back-to-back promotions as they sit third in Serie B, just two points off the top-two places.

Mid-table clubs aiming higher

The Scudetto contenders might grab all the headlines, but Serie A's mid-table sides are really strengthening this summer, explains Billy Wilkinson.

Whilst the top of the Serie A pack grows stronger with arrivals like Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus and Inter fixing the holes in their team, it appears Serie A’s middle pack are just as busy making important moves.

As always, those who are not blessed with rich owners or a lucrative financial model are forced to find different ways to be successful. Fiorentina’s method is buying promising talent and then developing them into world beaters and their strategy is clearly on show this summer.
