Bertolo set to join Palermo

The 23-year-old, who began his career in the Boca Juniors youth squad, has impressed for Banfield in recent months.

“Bertolo is a Palermo player. The deal is now done,” President Maurizio Zamparini told Radio Kiss Kiss.

“Now [Director of Sport Walter] Sabatini will fly out to Brazil and Argentina to finalise other negotiations that are already at a very advanced stage.”

Bertolo is expected to cost Palermo around £3million.
