Mauro Boselli In at Wigan Official


Wigan Athletic have finally announced their capture of 25 year old Argentina striker Mauro Boselli following a protracted transfer.

The deal to land the hotshot was complicated by the fact that he was owned by two clubs Estudiantes and Boca Juniors but with an agreement agreed on the fee, believed to be 5.8 million Boselli put pen to paper on a 4 year deal that has delighted Latics boss Roberto Martinez

The 25-year-old has been in Wigan over the past few days to undergo a medical and agree terms on a four year deal and has already declared: "I can`t wait to start."

Latics manager Roberto Martinez is hailing the move as a 'massive coup` for the club, as the Argentine hotshot, who has netted 32 goals in just 57 appearances for Argentine giants Estudiantes, is considered to be unlucky not to make the Argentina squad at South Africa 2010.

Boselli will arrive back in England in a fortnight alongside this summer`s other confirmed new arrival, Paraguayan international defender Antolin Alcaraz and Martinez is thrilled with his capture.

"Mauro is a goalscorer, who lives to put the ball in the back of the net and he is somebody we have been looking at for a long time," he said.
"At 25-years old he is at a perfect moment in his career to come and play in the Premier League, and he has all the right qualities to make his mark at this level. He is a clever player, a natural finisher who can cause havoc in the penalty area, and he gives the team some great new options with the variety of roles he can play.

"We want him to reach his full potential here and bring plenty of smiles to the Latics fans."


Martinez added: "These deals with clubs on the other side of the world are very difficult to complete and it has taken many hours of to-ing and fro-ing until everything was settled.
"I would like to play tribute to Chief Executive Brenda Spencer who has worked tirelessly to get this deal through."


Boselli finished as leading goal-scorer in last season`s Argentine Primera Clasura, a break-away tournament from the Argentine Primera, with 13 goals.

Since joining Estudiantes in 2008 his strike-rate has been extremely impressive, scoring 32 goals in just 57 appearances, and earning his first full international cap for Argentina against Ghana last year.

Boselli is delighted to have secured the move to England and says he cannot wait to start.


He becomes Latics` first Argentine in the Premier League era, although left sided defender Gino Padula made four league appearances for the club in the 2000-01 season.
