(REUTERS) - Eldor Shomurodov set his sights on silverware after the Uzbekistani striker completed a move to Roma from Genoa on Monday (Aug 2).
The 26-year-old signed a five-year deal with the capital club after joining for an initial €17.5 million (S$28.1 million) fee.
The deal includes further performance-related clauses, and Genoa retain the right to a percentage of the profit from a future sale.
"I would like to help my team to win trophies. To overcome challenges too. I will do everything I can in that regard. I want to do my very best and keep improving," Shomurodov told the Roma website.
Shomurodov, who scored eight goals in his debut Serie A campaign last season, is only the second player from Uzbekistan to play in Serie A after Ilyos Zeytulayev at Reggina from 2004 to 2006.
"I am incredibly proud to represent my country. I know how much people support me. I knew this when I moved to Genoa too. They cheered me on and I could tell," he said.
"Their support will be even stronger now as I will be playing for such a big club. It really is a huge honour."
Shomurodov scored a goal in Uzbekistan's 5-0 thrashing of Singapore in their World Cup Asian zone, Group D qualifier in June. Both teams did not advance to the next round.
Genoa completed a signing of their own on Tuesday (Aug 3), bringing in Italy international goalkeeper Salvatore Sirigu on a free transfer from Torino.
The 34-year-old former Paris St-Germain player was part of the Azzurri's victorious squad at Euro 2020, making one appearance from the bench in the 1-0 group-stage win over Wales.
"As well as victory at Euro 2020, Sirigu has won Ligue 1 four times, five French Super Cups, three French League Cups, two French Cups, a silver medal at Euro 2012 and a bronze at the 2013 Confederations Cup. He was named best goalkeeper in Ligue 1 twice," Genoa said in a statement.
Italian media reported that Sirigu has signed on for one year with the option of a second.
Sirigu, who left Torino after four years in Turin, will take over at Genoa from Mattia Perin, who has returned to Juventus after his loan spell ended.
