Sassuolo have signed Croatian international full-back Sime Vrsaljko from Genoa for a reported €7m fee. The 22-year-old is a natural right-back but filled in for injured left-back Danijel Pranjic during Croatia's 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™ campaign and has previously played in midfield.
A statement published on Sassuolo's official website said Vrsaljko would be presented to the media on Wednesday. The Neroverde have already added Federico Peluso from Juventus, striker Antonio Floro Flores and midfielder Davide Biondini to their ranks as they look to consolidate their position in Serie A having narrowly secured survival at the end of their maiden top-flight campaign.
Sassuolo have also on Wednesday confirmed the departure of 23-year-old midfielder Karim Laribi to ITalian Serie B side Bologna on a season-long loan.
