Genoa have swooped for Schalke fullback Rafinha.

The 24-year-old becomes Genoa's seventh signing of the summer after Luca Toni, Eduardo, Andrea Ranocchia, Chico, Franco Zuculini and Miguel Veloso.

Genoa president Enrico Preziosi announced the Brazilian's signing late yesterday afternoon.

Preziosi has also admitted that Robert Acquafresca's move to Cagliari is "almost done".
