Italian Serie A new boys Cremonese have signed Cyriel Dessers from Belgian side Genk, Megasportsarena.com reports.
Dessers was top scorer in the inaugural Europa Conference League last season with 10 goals for runners-up Feyenoord where he was on loan.
“I feel like a child unwrapping his Christmas gift by joining one of the most illustrious leagues in the world. It is going to be a difficult challenge full of obstacles, but I am ready to defend the colours of Cremonese.
“I’m looking forward to living a childhood dream in a new environment and doing all I can to help the team in the battles ahead.” Dessers told the club website.
The Nigeria international scored 11 times in 43 appearances for Genk after joining in 2020 from Dutch side Heracles, where his 15 league goals saw him finish as the Eredivisie’s joint-top scorer in the 2019-20 season.
Meanwhile, Genk wishes Dessers luck in his next assignment on their official Twitter handle: “Ciao, @CyrielDessers 👋! A great striker, a big personality 🌟. We’ve watched you grow over the years. Best of luck at @USCremonese .”
Dessers links up with compatriot David Okereke in Cremona, Lombardy.
