Italian champions Inter have signed Honduran striker David Suazo from Serie A rivals Cagliari.

“Inter have made a great buy. At Inter, Suazo will be their first choice. The rest will come after. He’s a great player and a great professional,” Massimo Cellino told Italian radio station Radio Radio.

Suazo, 27, joined Cagliari from Olimpia of Honduras in 1999. The Sardinian club were relegated to Serie B at the end of his first season, but Suazo scored 19 goals to help them win promotion back to the top flight during the 2003-04 campaign.

In the 2005-06 season he scored 22 Serie A goals for Cagliari, breaking the club record of 21 league goals in a season that former Italy international Gigi Riva set in 1970.
