Verona announce Toni signing

The 36-year-old has joined the newly-promoted Serie A side, in what is the 15th move of a nomadic career

Verona have announced the signing of Luca Toni from Fiorentina on a one-year deal.

The 36-year-old was a free agent after leaving the Viola at the end of last season but has now put pen to paper with the newly-promoted Serie A outfit.

The striker scored eight times in 27 appearances for Vincenzo Montella’s side in 2012/13 and his latest move means he has now played for 15 different clubs since starting out at Modena 19 years ago.

Verona finished second in Serie B last season and will need all of their new acquisition’s goalscoring prowess as they bid to stay in Italy’s top flight next term.
