MILAN - Genoa breathed new life into their
strike force on Tuesday, signing Antonio Floro Flores on loan
from Udinese as Giuseppe Sculli left for high-flying Lazio, the
Serie A clubs said.
Floro Flores, who has scored three goals this season, will
wear Rossoblu colours until June 30 when Genoa will have the
chance to buy him outright.
The 27-year-old had been heavily linked with a move to
inconsistent Juventus, but opted for Genoa, currently 13th in
Serie A, where he is expected to lead the forward line.
"It was neck-and-neck between Genoa and Juve," Paolo
Palermo, the player's agent, told Sky Italia. "But he preferred
Genoa - they made him feel important."
Juventus, who lie fifth in Serie A, had been tracking the
Italian after suffering a string of injuries to strikers
including Fabio Quagliarella and Luca Toni, snapped up from
Genoa earlier in the January transfer window.
The 28-year-old Sculli, who failed to score in four starts
for Genoa this season, signed a four-and-a-half year deal with
Lazio. The Rome club, four points behind Serie A leaders AC
Milan, face city rivals Roma in the Italian Cup on Wednesday.
