The Fire signed Italian goalkeeper Paolo Tornaghi on Wednesday who was with the club on trial during the preseason.
He will be added to the roster when he receives his International Transfer Certificate and P1 Visa. Upon Tornaghi's addition to the roster, the Fire will have three goalies including Tornaghi, Jay Nolly and starter Sean Johnson.
Tornaghi, 23, was an Inter Milan youth player and played for Serie C side Como during the 2008-09 and 2010-11 seasons. During the 2009-10 season he was on load to Rimini. Tornaghi played in the 2005 FIFA U17 Youth Championships in Peru.
He is the first Italian-born player to sign with the Fire in club history.
"Paolo has come in, performed at a high level and worked to earn a roster spot with us this preseason," Fire head coach Frank Klopas said in a team statement. "Paolo has a lot of potential for growth in this league. He is a talented kid who will push Sean Johnson and Jay Nolly in each training session."
