Genoa sign Senegal striker Moussa Konate and Croatian defender Sime Vrsaljko

Genoa have completed the double signing of Sime Vrsaljko from Dinamo Zagreb and Senegalese striker Moussa Konate.

Konate arrives on season from Russia side Krasnodar on a season-long loan, while Croatian international Vrsaljko joins Dinamo Zagreb for an undisclosed fee.

A number of Premier League clubs had been linked with Konate, but Genoa have managed to lure the 20-year-old to Italy with the option to make his loan move permanent.

"Moussa Konate joins Genoa on loan. The young player will defend the Serie A club colors in season 2013/2014", read a Krasnodar statement.

Right-back Vrsaljko is highly-regarded after impressing at Zagreb and he is already a Croatian international.
