Serie A new-boys Hellas Verona are on the brink of signing River Plate midfielder Ezequiel Cirigliano.

Sky Italia says the talented youngster will move to Verona on a 12-month loan for a fee of €300,000. Verona will have the option to sign Cirigliano permanently next June for €2.5 million.

The agreement also includes a 40 per cent sell-on fee for River.
