He moved on loan to fellow Serie B club Ternana on 31 August 2012, along with Riccardo Maniero and Antonino Ragusa.[6] In June 2013 Parma bought back Brosco for €500.[7]


Brosco returned to Parma in June 2013. In July 2013 Brosco was signed by another Serie B club Latina in temporary deal, along with Alessandro Iacobucci.[8] In June 2014 Latina did not excised the option to purchase both players; however on 10 July 2014 Brosco was signed by Latina in 4-year contract.[9]


On 31 January 2017, he was sold to Verona. Verona loaned him back to Latina until the end of the 2016–17 season.[10]
