Catania have announced the signing of striker Gonzalo Bergessio from Saint-Etienne after a successful loan spell for an undisclosed fee.

The 27-year-old impressed in Serie A last season when he scored five goals in 12 matches during a productive spell in Italy.

"Gonzalo Bergessio is a Catania player," said Catania general manager, Pietro Lo Monaco.

The arrival of the Argentina-born marksman to the club has heightened speculation that his countrymen Maxi Lopez could be shown the exit door.

He added: "If Maxi Lopez stayed it would mean we'd be hunting for flies with a cannon, because with him and Bergessio, we'd have two extraordinary forwards," added Lo Monaco.

"In any case, Catania's transfer dealings have not yet finished."
