Floriana FC have confirmed the signing of Italian left back Lorenzo Trillo.
The 25-year-old left back has agreed terms with the Premier League club and is set to make his debut on Thursday when Floriana take on Moldovan side Petrocub in the UEFA Conference League first qualifying round.
Trillo is Floriana’s first overseas signing of the close season and he fills the void left by Ryan Camenzuli who left the club in the close season to join rivals Ħamrun Spartans.
Trillo came through the Frosinone youth ranks where he featured for the Serie B club’s U-17 and U-19 selections before joined Rieti on a loan deal in 2017.
Since then, Trillo donned the colours of Sambenedettese and Arzachena.
Earlier this year, Trillo had a short spell with AJ Fano.
“Italian left-footed player Lorenzo Trillò has become the 4th signing, and the 1st new foreign player, of Floriana Football Club for season 2022/23,” Floriana FC said in a statement.
“The 25-year-old Trillò, who can play in all positions on the left wing, developed his football skills with Frosinone Calcio and since then made nearly 70 appearances in the Italian Serie C with Arzachena Costa Smeralda and S.S. Sambenedettese.
“Having last played for FC Rieti and SCD Alma Juventus Fano, the Italian left wing-back was scouted by the Club’s technical team as a player with powerful overlapping runs and precise crossing abilities.”
