Argentine striker Mauro Boselli joins Genoa

Wigan striker Mauro Boselli has joined Serie A club Genoa on
loan until the end of the season.

The 25-year-old Argentine, who has represented his country
twice, joined Wigan after scoring 32 goals in 57 games for
Estudiantes, according to Wigan’s website. He has failed to
reproduce that form in England, however, scoring once in 12
appearances.

The loan deal was confirmed by Wigan on Friday.

Wigan manager Roberto Martinez says ”I am confident he will
come back a better and stronger player. … He needs this
opportunity to play.”

Genoa will have the option to sign the forward on a permanent
basis at the end of the season.
