Genoa have re-signed striker Marco Borriello from Roma for an undisclosed fee to strengthen their attacking options before the transfer deadline.

The 30-year-old spent six months on loan at Italian champions Juventus last season, scoring twice in 13 appearances, but failed to impress manager Antonio Conte enough to seal a permanent move.

He had previously spent time at Genoa during the 2007-08 season before returning to AC Milan, the club where he began his career and that still part-owns him.

"Il Grifone has rediscovered one of those strikers who has written his recent history to the sound of goals," Genoa announced on their official website.

Borriello's return to Genoa was made possible following the departure of Alberto Gilardino, who has joined Bologna on loan.
