Cagliari make double transfer swoop

Cagliari have signed wing-back Gabriele Perico and midfielder Simon Laner from Serie B side AlbinoLeffe.

Perico and Laner both scored six goals in the Italian second tier last season as AlbinoLeffe finished in mid-table.

Both 26-year-olds have signed four-year contracts, Cagliari announced.

Laner said: "I'm honoured to be at such a major club. It's my first experience in Serie A and I'll make every effort to repay the trust which has been shown in me."
