The 25-year-old attacker makes the move from Swiss outfit FC Lugano for an undisclosed fee.

Alioski has signed a four year contract with the Whites, running until the end of the 2020/21 season.

After coming through the ranks at Young Boys, Alioski moved to fellow Swiss side FC Schaffhausen in 2013.

He spent three years with Schaffhausen, before joining FC Lugano, initially on loan, in January 2016, before that move was made permanent.

Last season, in his first full campaign with Lugano, Alioski made 36 appearances, scored 17 goals and provided 14 assists.

He finished as Lugano’s top goal scorer during the campaign and third overall in the Swiss Super League.

Alioski will now link up with the squad for the Whites’ pre-season tour of Austria and could make his debut in Sunday’s friendly with FC Ingolstadt.

This is the one that has excited me.
If rumours are true we have beaten off interest from FC Basel and Hertha Berlin to sign him.
He looks like he will provide a real cutting edge to our team.
Definitely Think we need a Centre half and ideally a left back

Hi everyone newbie here.

i cant remember the last time i saw a signing get people so excited. he really does look the real deal and if him and Saiz hit the ground running i really think we will be a difficult team to stop next season. i just think we need to not expect too much to quick.

Yes expectations are high & as fans we need to be patient allowing time for the new players to settle in their new surroundings & gel as a team of course
