Inter Milan have confirmed they have completed the signing of Genoa front-man Rodrigo Palacio for a fee believed to be in the region of €11 million.
The 30-year old was reportedly close to moving to the Nerazzuri last summer, but the two clubs could not agree a fee as Il Grifone rejected all approaches for the player.
The Argentina international enjoyed a prolific campaign for the Serie A outfit last season, finishing the year with 21 goals in 34 appearances
And compatriot team-mate Walter Samuel welcomed the move for Palaci, telling La Gazzetta dello Sport: "He will make the difference, he has shown that in Genoa and at Boca Juniors."
The club released an official statement announcing they had signed the forward on a three-year deal, "Rodrigo Palacio is an Inter player.
"The striker is tied to Inter until June 30, 2015."
