From ESPN - July 16, 2017

Brisbane Roar's search for a marquee frontman is over with veteran Italian Massimo Maccarone joining the A-League club on a one-year deal.

Coach John Aloisi confirmed Maccarone has accepted an offer from the Roar and is expected to arrive in Australia in the coming days to meet his new teammates.

"Massimo's excited to be joining us," Aloisi told the Courier Mail.

The signing continues Brisbane's attacking overhaul following the departures of Jamie Maclaren, Brandon Borrello, Thomas Broich and Tommy Oar.
