Paris [France], September 12 (ANI/Xinhua): Paris Saint-Germain have announced the signing of right back Alessandro Florenzi on a one-year loan deal from Italian Serie A club Roma.
The French Ligue 1 defending champions added that the deal included a purchase option when the loan ends next summer.
The 29-year-old Italian international is the first newcomer at Parc des Princess during this transfer window, which will be a relief for Thomas Tuchel’s side who are severely affected by the coronavirus pandemic as seven players in the first team squad, including Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Mauro Icardi, had tested positive recently. Neymar has now returned to the training ground.
Florenzi started his football career in Roma’s youth teams and turned pro in 2011. He spent almost all his career at the Serie A side where he scored 28 goals and provided 32 assists in 280 appearances.
