Panathinaikos make Fornaroli sixth signing

Uruguayan forward Bruno Fornaroli, 24, has become Panathinaikos FC's sixth signing of the summer after leaving UC Sampdoria to sign a three-year deal with the Athens club.

Panathinaikos FC have announced the signing of 24-year-old forward Bruno Fornaroli from UC Sampdoria.

Fornaroli, from Uruguay, has agreed to a three-year contract with Panathinaikos, who begin their UEFA Champions League campaign against Motherwell FC in the third qualifying round. He started his career in his homeland before joining Sampdoria in 2008, but leaves the club with just 17 Serie A appearances under his belt and having spent time on loan with the likes of CA San Lorenzo de Almagro and RC Recreativo de Huelva.

Fornaroli is the sixth new arrival at Panathinaikos this summer. Central defenders José Manuel Velasquez and André Pinto, defensive midfielder Pape Habib Sow, winger Ibrahim Sissoko and forward Kostas Barbaroussis have also joined the Athens club.
