Former Arsenal wonderkid Arturo Lupoli returns to Serie A with Italian minnows Frosinone

The Italian has helped the club over the line to the Italian top-flight.

Italian minnows Frosinone have completed a miracle, by earning promotion to Serie A despite their lowly status.

That means a former Arsenal talent has another chance in the top flight of Italian football, as in February Frosinone signed Arturo Lupoli from Varese.

When Arsenal snapped up the Italian as a teenager big things were expected of the Italian youth international after he scored 45 goals in just 22 games in the Parma youth team.

However his three years in London were not successful. A decent loan spell at Derby County aside he ended up signing for Fiorentina in 2007 before further loan spells at Treviso, Norwich City and Sheffield United followed. He left La Viola for Ascoli in 2009.

Grosseto signed him from Ascoli in 2011. He spent two years with the club before joining Varese in 2013 and having a spell on loan in Hungary with Budapest Honved.

Now he is back in the big time with Frosinone, a tiny club who were playing in the Lega Pro last term, in what has been a miracle campaign.

So Lupoli, who was once a massive prospect at Arsenal, can look forward to playing in Serie A once again.

He is under contract at the club until 2016 and will hope to impress in the top-flight.
