Parma take Sergio Floccari on loan

August 31, 2011

Striker Sergio Floccari has joined Parma on loan from Lazio until the end of the season.

Parma will have an option to sign the 29-year-old on a permanent transfer next summer for 5.5million euros.

A statement from Lazio read: ''Lazio announces the transfer of Sergio Floccari to Parma on loan in a 1.5 million euros transfer deal. Parma can acquire the player's sporting rights next summer at a fixed price of 5.5 million euros.''

Floccari joined Lazio from Genoa in 2010 and scored eight goals in 30 league appearances for the Biancoceleste outfit last season.

The arrival of strikers Miroslav Klose and Djibril Cisse in Rome this summer saw Floccari drop down the pecking order.
