Genoa boss Gian Piero Gasperini is delighted with their swoop for AC Milan striker Alessandro Matri.

Matri has joined on an initial loan.

"They have characteristics which are clearly different," Gasperini said when asked to compare the two frontmen.

"Matri is definitely stronger in the penalty area, maybe he is more dynamic. He is arriving with a desire for a fresh start."
