Latics confirm Boselli coup

Wigan Athletic have snapped up Argentina striker Mauro Boselli from Estudiantes for an undisclosed fee.

The 25-year-old, who has played a couple of times for his country, has agreed a four-year contract with the Latics and manager Roberto Martinez has high hopes for the South American.

He told the club's official website:"Mauro is a goalscorer, who lives to put the ball in the back of the net and is somebody we have been looking at for a long time.

"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.

"These deals with clubs on the other side of the world are very difficult to complete and it has taken many hours of toing and froing until everything was settled."
