Cerci arrives at Torino after a difficult two year spell at Fiorentina, where he impressed and infuriated the Viola fans in equal measure. That being said, the former Roma winger is undoubtedly a talented player on his day, as emphasised by his tally of twelve goals in 46 games during his time at Fiorentina, as well as the fact that Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini is apparently an admirer.
Torino have paid a reported €2.5m to sign Cerci on a co-ownership deal, and the player now reunites with Giampiero Ventura, who was his coach at Pisa in the 2007-2008 season. It is hoped that being reunited with his former coach, who has also been described as a 'mentor' to the player could lead to Cerci becoming a more consistent performer.
Welcome to Torino Alessio!
