Former Wigan and Chelsea striker Franco Di Santo set to test his skills in the German Bundesliga after signing a three-year deal with Werder Bremen. The tall Argentine enjoy a bitter sweet season in the English top flight last season winning the FA Cup and relegated from the Premier League in the same season.
With a change of League and scenery the 24 year-old is hoping he can make a solid impact in the Bundesliga and force his way in to the Argentina World Cup team. Having capped just 3 times for the Argentine national team, the player transfer to Werder Bremen would make his goal more realistic and achievable. Werder Bremen is delighted to sign the player and confirm arrival on the club?s official website reading:
?We had been in the hunt for a robust striker with experience in a big league. We are very confident that we have found a good solution in Franco Di Santo. He has experienced but still possesses enough for development in order to make a great leap forwards.?
Franco will surely be missed by the Latics faithful even though he wasn’t a prolific goal scorer while at the DW Stadium he has contributed a few respectable performances for the team that any good fan would acknowledge. He scored 13 goals in 92 appearances for the Latics during a three-year spell with 5 of them scored in the past season.
