Atsushi Yanagisawa and Riccardo Zampagna will be with Messina next season.Messina have been boosted by the news that Atsushi Yanagisawa and Riccardo Zampagna will be with the club next season.
Japan international Yanagisawa had been on loan from Kashima Antlers, but has now penned a three-year deal with the Serie A club.
Yanagisawa has been primarily used from the bench in his debut season in Italy, but has provided excellent cover for Ivica Iliev and Zampagna.
Zampagna's two-year deal is a major plus for Messina as he was the club's top scorer in Serie A following promotion last summer.
Messina have impressed following their elevation from Serie B last term and will be hoping to build on this season's top half finish.
