Alberto Cerri is now officially a new striker for Empoli. The player’s contract has already been lodged with the Lega. Cerri arrives on loan from Como with a particularly unique arrangement.
Born in 1996, at the end of the current season, his contract contains both the right and the obligation to redeem for 2.5 million euros. This obligation is tied to the fulfilment of certain objectives, such as the number of appearances as a starter.
The player’s move to Empoli is considered a significant transfer in the Italian Football league, as Cerri has earned a solid reputation in his former club, Como. But his new journey at Empoli will carry a different set of challenges and expectations.
Despite the substantial redemption clause in his contract, Cerri is expected to play a pivotal role in Empoli’s campaign this season. His presence will undoubtedly bolster the attacking options for the club, and fans will be anticipating his first appearance in an Empoli shirt.
