[Mercato] Lazio win Cruz chase

Lazio have signed former Argentina striker Julio Cruz on a free transfer from Italian champions Inter.

Julio CruzCruz has signed a one-year contract with an option for a further season with his new club and could make his Lazio debut on Saturday week against his former club as the Coppa Italia holders face the Nerazzurri for the Italian Supercoppa final in Beijing.

The 34-year-old arrived in Italy in 2000 and after three seasons with Bologna he joined Inter in 2003.
