Rivas: On the move
Livorno have landed Mozart and Nelson Rivas as they use some of the money they are getting from the sale of Alessandro Diamanti.
Diamanti is now in London ahead of his move to Upton Park, and Livorno have already moved to spend the money raised from his sale.
Livorno, though, are not looking to replace striker Diamanti as they feel they are well catered for up-front, instead they have brought in central defender Nelson Rivas from Inter Milan and Mozart from Palmeiras.
"Despite losing Diamanti, Livorno still have [Cristiano] Lucarelli and [Francesco] Tavano, who guarantee many goals," president Aldo Spinelli told Radio Kiss Kiss.
"We have plenty of strikers in our squad and will not be bringing in any more.
"Our transfer market is now closed, with Mozart and Rivas we are complete.
"Rivas is official, as he has already signed the contract and now we are just waiting for [Inter director Marco] Branca to file the paperwork.
"Rivas is very good and I can guarantee he is not the player we have seen at Inter in recent months. He'll forge a great centre-back partnership with Diniz."
