Aston Villa Football Club is delighted to announce the signing of goalkeeper Pierluigi Gollini.
Gollini, 21, arrives from Hellas Verona and has penned a four-year deal.
The highly-rated Italian U21 shot-stopper has now linked up with Roberto Di Matteo’s squad as they build up their fitness levels at a training camp in Austria.
Boss Di Matteo said: “I am very pleased to have brought in Pierluigi.
“We have managed to sign him despite the fact he was being chased by a number of top sides and that is a great sign.
“He’s a young man but has plenty of experience and I’m sure he’ll prove to be an excellent signing for the Club.”
