We are delighted to announce the signing of Guglielmo Vicario from Empoli, subject to international clearance and a work permit.
The Italy international has signed a contract with the Club that will run until 2028 and will wear the number 13 shirt.
Born in Udine, Italy, Guglielmo spent his early years with Bearzi, joining Udinese’s youth team in August, 2013, before a season-long loan with Fontanafredda during the 2014/15 campaign, where he made a total of 30 appearances.
A commanding goalkeeper with the ability to play out from the back, Guglielmo moved to Venezia in August, 2015, making 89 appearances in all competitions for the Italian side, keeping 28 clean sheets and, in 2016/17, helped the club earn promotion to Serie B, while also claiming the Coppa Italia Lega Pro.
After four years with Venezia, he joined Cagliari in July, 2019, before heading out on loan to Perugia for the duration of the campaign, where he made 39 appearances.
The athletic shot-stopper returned to the Rossoblù, making his Serie A debut in April, 2021, and, after featuring on seven occasions for Cagliari, he joined Empoli on a season-long loan in July, 2021 - a deal which turned permanent the following year.
An impressive two-year spell with Empoli saw Guglielmo make a total of 71 appearances in all competitions for the Serie A outfit. His eye-catching performances earned him his first international call-up in September, 2022, ahead of Italy’s latest UEFA Nations League campaign, where the Azzurri eventually finished in third place.
