Juventus and Italy legend Mauro Camoranesi looks set to be the latest big name recruit to leave Serie A and join the Premier League.
The 33-year-old World Cup winner flew into the Midlands to finalise a deal with Birmingham City after stating his eight year love affair with the old lady of Italian football was over.
Camoranesi has 54 Italian caps in which he scored 5 goals, and will be a welcome addition to the Birmingham squad which seems to be looking stronger with each new addition.
The Italian winger’s mediator, Vlado Borozan, has revealed that the deal is 'almost done' and the the final details will be ironed out at the start of this week now he's in the country.
Another Italian World Cup winner is being linked with a St Andrews move alongside Camoranesi, with the Blues hot on the heels of Lyon left-back Fabio Grosso in a potential season-long loan deal.
It’s exciting time’s for the Birimigham City fans as the new big name signing’s promised by Carson Yeung now seem to be materializing which all bodes well for the club.
