Arturo Lupoli is a promising young Italian football player who is on the books of the Italian Serie A side Fiorentina. He plays as a striker and is currently on loan to Norwich City for the 2008-2009 season.
Arturo Lupoli first developed at the youth academy of Parma but by mid-2004 his contract at the Italian side ran out and he was lured to Arsenal, who paid Parma a compensation fee of 200,000 pounds, with which Parma were understandably not satisfied as they had raised the player (football-wise of course).
Arturo Lupoli was an Arsenal player between 2005 and 2007. He made his first team debut for the Gunners against Manchester City in the Carling Cup on October 27,2004 and scored his first goals for the Gunners against Everton in the same competition in the next match.
But Lupoli could make only one Premier League appearance for Arsenal and played on loan with some distinction at Derby County in the 2006-2007 season.
Arturo Lupoli was signed by Fiorentina in July 2007 on a five-year deal on a free transfer. He was loaned out to Treviso in Italy in 2008 and hasn’t made any first team league debut for the Florence side.
Arturo Lupoli was signed by Norwich City on a loan deal for the 2008-2009 season and made his competitive debut for the English League Championship side against Coventry City in a 2-0 defeat for his club.
