According to the Birmingham Mail and other sites, the signing of Pierluigi Gollini from Verona is another one in the bag, with quotes from the player himself;
“I am very happy for this opportunity”, Gollini said to Sky Italia. “I am a little sorry to leave Italy, but it was a very important opportunity.
“I am going to a club with a very glorious stadium with 40,000 seats. I want to thank Verona for these two years.”
Read a big pay rise, in other words.
Hmm, so we’re talking about a £4.1 mill transfer here, which is serious money, given the level we’re at.
Are we really expecting that a 21 year old goalkeeper is going to be our new number one?
I have to say, I don’t quite understand this one at all, as it’s a lot of money for a back-up, given we have Guzan and Bunn still on the books.
