At six foot three the centre-forward, who broke into Roma's first team at just 18, is a lofty addition to Gerrard's new look Gers side and has promised fans he will graft for his place in the side.

New signing Lassana Coulibaly was anxious he was the victim of a prank call when Rangers boss Steven Gerrard phoned to discuss a move to Ibrox.
