Melbourne City sign ex-Sampdoria, Panathinaikos striker Bruno Fornaroli

Melbourne City have signed Uruguayan striker Bruno Fornaroli on a two-year deal, the club announced this week.

Fornaroli has spent time in Europe with Sampdoria in Serie A, and Panathinaikos in the Greek Super League. The 27-year-old has also been prolific in spells with Uruguayan sides Danubio and Nacional.

City head coach John van 't Schip noted Fornaroli's technical ability as a key reason for the signing.

"Bruno is the type of player we have been looking for and we are excited to welcome him to Melbourne City FC," van't Schip said.

"We believe Bruno's experience in South America and his technical ability as a number 9 will greatly complement our other attacking players.

"Bruno will join us immediately in training this week and will be available for our FFA Cup campaign as we prepare for the start of the A-League season."
