[Mercato] Genoa lure Bocchetti

Genoa have signed talented defender Salvatore Bocchetti in a co-ownership agreement with Serie B side Frosinone.

The 22-year-old will be part of Pierluigi Casiraghi’s Italy squad for the Olympic Games in Beijing this summer after impressing at the Toulon Tournament where he made four appearances in a winning side.

Bocchetti can either play as a left-back or as a central defender and is known for his prowess in the air, as well as being a strong tackler.

The Ascoli native has signed a five-year deal with the Grifone and will undergo a medical at Marassi within the next week.

He becomes the sixth Rossoblu signing of the summer after Davide Di Gennaro, Francesco Modesto, Andrea Gasbarroni, Alessandro Potenza and Giuseppe Biava.
