Burton boss Paul Peschisolido faces battle to sign Argentinian trialist Andres Gurrieri

Burton Albion manager Paul Peschisolido is keen to bolster his striking options with the capture of Argentinian trialist Andres Gurrieri but admits it could be far from easy.

The 22-year-old has excelled on trial with the Brewers and has impressed the club with his work-rate in training and also four goals in his last two reserve outings.

However Peschisolido told the Burton Mail he is aware of the complex international clearance rules in place and despite the fact Gurrieri holds dual Argentinian and Italian citizenship is sceptical that a deal can be completed in the near future: “Andres was playing in Italy before he came to us. His agent has said he will help to sort things out, but I think there are a few stumbling blocks in the way.

“It’s going to be quite a complicated process, but at least it means Andres can spend more time with us.”

Gurrieri showed his striking prowess on Tuesday afternoon as he netted twice against a Stoke XI at the Premier League side’s Clayton Wood training ground.

Their opponents included £6m summer signing Wilson Palacios as well as Michael Tonge and Danny Higinbotham in their starting line-up.

Gurrieri also spent time with fellow League Two side Plymouth Argyle in the summer and despite impressing then manager Peter Reid never put pen to paper on a deal at Home Park.
