Sampdoria have sold Brazilian goal keeper Da Costa to Bologna and have already found a replacement for the departed keeper in the form of Catania’s Alberto Frison.
The club released an official statement regarding the purchase of Frison. It goes as follows,:
“Sampdoria would like to inform everyone that they have acquired the sporting rights of Catania goalkeeper Alberto Frison temporarily with the option to make the deal permanent at the end of the loan.”
This news comes right after the blucerchiati sold veteran Serie A keeper Da Costa to Bologna earlier in the day. Ambitious Serie B side Bologna acquired the goalkeeper on a permanent basis. So far this season, Da Costa has seen him playing time cut down as Argentinean shot stopper Sergio Romero has been performing at a high level. Frison, on the other hand, already has Serie A experience and is ready to make the step up. It remains to be seen whether or not he’ll be able to win the starting role between the sticks.
