M. Global S. Ltd, the intermediary agency li- cenced by the Malta Football Association, an- nounced the agreement between the Italian side and the 19-year-old on social media on Tuesday. The former Raiders Lija midfielder was on a 10- day trial at Serie A side Fiorentina Women this summer. Genoa have been newly promoted to Serie B, after finishing second in Serie C during the 2021/2022 season. Lucia was named wom- en's best young player by the Malta Football Play- ers' Association (MFPA) for the past season and was included in the Best XI, after scoring five goals. She was part of the na- tional U-19 selection that gained a promotion to League A in the European qualifiers. "I decided to take the plunge and make the move overseas in an effort to improve my football- ing craft," Lucia said in a statement issued by Ace Management, her legal assistants. "I have loved the game since an early age and be- ing able to make a profes- sion out of it is a dream come true. I was taken aback by Genoa's interest in me and their enthusiasm and commitment to having me as part of their squad." Maltese footballer Maya Lucia joins Italian Serie B side Genoa Maya Lucia
