Here’s a pizza news Falkirk fans desperate for transfer news will savour.

The Bairns have spent the week taking a look at two Italian players from AS Roma’s youth system, and are looking abroad again for a striker.

They joined up with Falkirk at Stirling this week after the players were decanted from their Falkirk Stadium training base at the expense of Tom Jones who played Westfield on Saturday.

That also saw Friday’s 5-0 win over East Stirlingshire in the League Cup switched to Broadwood in Cumbernauld.

But though the new duo - who are twins and trialled with Rangers when Ally McCoist was the manager at Ibrox - bring a continental connection to the summer transfer talk, they’re expected to link up with the Bairns’ under-17s for one further week of assessment. One is understood to be a forward, and his brother a midfield player.

Meanwhile The Falkirk Herald understands moves are afoot to bring a French striker to Falkirk with Botti Biabi edging ever closer to a move the the English Premier League with Swansea.

Falkirk have made three summer signings for the first team, recruiting Danny Rogers, Bob McHugh and Paul Watson.
