The 30-year-old Italian has experience in some of the top leagues in European football including Liga 1, La Liga, Serie B and Lega Pro as well as the group stage of the 2013/14 UEFA Champions League, making nearly 300 appearances in all competitions and finding the back of the net 84 times.

The strong finisher spent the last two seasons at La Liga side SD Eibar and Liga 1 side Steaua Bucharest on loan from Sampdoria.

Wanderers CEO John Tsatsimas said that Piovaccari was an exciting signing for the side which finished second last on the A-League ladder last season having scored just 27 goals in 29 games.

“What we have in Federico is a proven goal scorer who has performed consistently at the top level including in the UEFA Champions League, Serie B, Liga 1 and La Liga,” said Tsatsimas.

“At 30-years-of-age and coming off a season in one of the top leagues in world football I believe we have brought in a player who will complement our team and our style with a real attacking threat.

Piovaccari said he was looking forward to the prospect of playing in Australia.

"I'm really happy and can't wait to start this new challenge in my football career, I know it's going to be a wonderful experience for me and my family.

“I would like to thank the Club and Chairman for this opportunity, I'll do everything in my power to pay back their faith in me… Forza Wanderers!”
