Torino have made their first acquisition of the January transfer window by completing the signing of Genoa striker Riccardo Meggiorini.
Meggiorini has signed on a co-ownership deal, and could make his debut for Torino against his former side Cittadella on Saturday. One worrying statistic for Toro fans is the fact that in the last three years, Meggiorini has only scored seven goals in 73 appearances for three different clubs.
That being said, Meggiorini did score earlier this season against Inter whilst on loan at Novara, and the last time the striker played in Serie B, in the 2008-09 season, he scored an impressive eighteen goals for Cittadella.
Meggiorini's arrival is a timely one, as Captain Rolando Bianchi injured his hand in training on Monday, and is rated doubtful for Saturday's match.
Here is a clip of Riccardo Meggiorini in action for Giampiero Ventura's Bari side in the 2009-10 season, including a goal against Juventus.
