Tozser Shuns Premier League for Serie A
Italian club, Genoa CFC, who are bidding to work their way up the Italian soccer latest odds, have bolstered their already impressive roster with former KRC Genk player, Daniel Tozser. The Hungarian midfielder had been courted by Premier League sides West Bromwich Albion and Bolton Wanderers before Il Grifone (the Griffon), as Genoa are otherwise known, swooped on Tozser, earlier this week.
Tozser, 26, began his youth career at Debreceni VSC, a Hungarian team, in 2002. The left-footed player soon caught the attention of famed Turkish outfit, Galatasaray AS, who introduced the then-youngster into their reserve side, A2. Tozser would not play first-team football until 2004, when he joined Ferencvarosi TC.
After a decent few years at the 'Green Eagles', Tozser signed for AEK Athens. He arrived at Genk in 2008, and racked up 15 goals in 98 appearances for the Belgian outfit, over the ensuing three years. He was particularly impressive in Genk's short-lived Champions League campaign, earlier this season, which saw the side almost pull off a few upsets in the Champions League gambling online odds.
Tozser is expected to sign a four-year agreement with Genoa. However, it is currently unknown how much the Italian team has invested in the player. The Hungarian, who had just a few months left on his contract at Genk, has increased in value every season for eight years, from £450,000 in 2004, to £3.1m in January 2012.
With 20 caps for his country under his waistband, Tozser joins Italian international, Alberto Gilardino, and veteran midfielder, Marco Rossi, as one of the more experienced players in Genoa's team. Fans will no doubt be hoping that Tozser can help the side climb out of their mid-table funk, in the Italian Serie A.
