Livorno coach Attilio Perotti has made it clear that his side need to sign at least two players if they are to have a realistic chance of escaping as well as expressing his disappointment at his sides performance in their defeat to Roma.

Following the Amaranto’s 3-0 defeat away to Roma it is clear they are desperately lacking fire power up front having managed just 2 goals from their last 9 games.

“I didn’t expect such a low profile performance. It was disappointing,” Perotti told  Sport.

“I thought I’d see a reaction from the players, but they are really struggling now.”

The club’s president, Aldo Spinelli, is looking to add reinforcements during the winter window in the shape of Catania’s Maxi Lopez, a long term target of the Labronici, as well as Verona’s Daniele Cacia.

The former Lecce and Padova forward has not had regular playing time at the Mastini and could be leaving ’s team soon.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport this has prompted the Tuscan side to make enquiries about the availability of the 30 year old Italian.

After Saturday night’s defeat Livorno remain joint bottom with Catania having amassed just thirteen points for twenty games.
