CF Montreal acquired defender Gabriele Corbo on loan from Bologna FC 1909 for the 2022 season.

The 21-year-old Italian spent last season on loan at Serie B side Ascoli, logging 745 minutes in 14 games.

"We are delighted to have Gabriele on board for the upcoming season. He is a right-footed defender who can play in both a three-man and a four-man defence," Montreal sporting director Olivier Renard said in a news release issued Sunday.

"In the past, he has even played a few games at right back in a four-man defense. He is very happy to come here, and already joined us several weeks ago. He is gradually getting used to his new work environment and his new city for 2022."

After making his professional debut with Spezia Calcio in 2018, the central defender made the jump to Serie A, signing with Bologna in the summer of 2018.

He played in three games in the Italian top flight with Bologna before his loan to Ascoli.
