It was announced by the franchise on July 17 (Wednesday) that forward Alessandro Noselli is now the newest addition to the roster.

Noselli, 32, started his career with his hometown team, Udinese, but most recently played for Sassuolo in Italy’s Serie B. Durig his four seasons with Sassuolo, Noselli scored 38 goals in 99 league appearances, including a single-season career-high 18 goals during the 2009-10 season.

“Alessandro will be a very positive addition to our forward line,” head coach Giovanni Savarese said. “He’s a proven goal-scorer who was productive in Serie B and can help lend his experience to our younger players.”

“I’ve been training with the team the past few weeks and have been really impressed with the level of play,” said Noselli. “The Cosmos name has so much history and New York is an incredible city, so it’s long been a dream of mine to live and play here.”
