Struggling Italian side Perugia have made a triple addition to their squad in a bid to escape relegation from Serie A.
Perugia are one place off the foot of the Italian table but have not won a league game all season and have ten points to show for their efforts from ten draws.
The club have signed two forwards to try and secure them a vital first win of the season.
Veteran Dario Hubner has arrived from basement side Ancona and it is hoped that his experience of the top-flight will be useful.
Giuseppe Sculli has also arrived, from Chievo, although he has arrived on a six-month loan deal while Hubner is a permanent transfer.
Young Argentinian defender Felix Benito is the third arrival into Serse Cosmi's side, as he arrives from Independiente.
Cosmi is hopeful that both Sculli and Hubner could be available for Saturday's Serie A match with Siena.
Perugia do now want to stop there, however, and have an eye on an ambitious swoop for Dutch defender Frank de Boer.
The Galatasaray man has not had the best of times in Turkey and could be tempted into tryinghis hand at life in Serie A.
