Pierluigi Gollini has signed a four-year contract at Aston Villa after officially completing his move from Hellas Verona.

“I am very pleased to have brought in Pierluigi.”

“We have managed to sign him despite the fact he was being chased by a number of top sides and that is a great sign.”

“He’s a young man but has plenty of experience and I’m sure he’ll prove to be an excellent signing for the Club.” - RDM speaking to AVFC

The twenty-one year old shot stopper will now head to Austria to link up with Aston Villa’s senior squad and offer competition to Mark Bunn, Jed Steer and Brad Guzan for the number one jersey at Villa Park. The Italian has a high talent ceiling and had to play behind a leaky defence at Verona. I’m sure he will fit right in at Aston Villa.

Here’s what The Villa View had to say about Gollini in their own unique way.

I’m sure all Villa fans will join us in wishing a ‘buongiorno’ to Gollini. Let’s get to work!
