Serie A newcomers Genoa have announced the signing of Alessandro Lucarelli.
The experienced defender moved from Reggina to Siena earlier this summer, but after just a few days of training his relationship with coach Andrea Mandorlini became strained.
Genoa moved quickly to open negotiations with Siena, and have now snapped him up on a three-year deal.
"I've signed a similar contract with the intention to respect it," Lucarelli told the club's official website.
"I had other offers, but Genoa have been the club who showed the most desire," he told the club official website.
Genoa open their Serie A campaign against European Champions Milan this weekend.
