AC Milan added Andrea Conti to their list of pre-season signings on Friday, the right-back joins on a five-year deal from Atalanta.
Milan place faith in promising full-back Conti
The Rossoneri described the Italian Under-21 player as “one of the most interesting talents” in Italy’s top flight last season, when he helped Atalanta to fourth.
“A young talent ... showing consistent performances throughout the whole campaign with 33 appearances ... is looking to take the leap in his career joining a top club in AC Milan”, the club added.
The 23-year-old arrives on a deal estimated to be worth 25 million euros. Conti becomes Milan's seventh recruit as the club look to rebuild after finishing last season sixth in the table.
The club's other new arrivals include André Silva from Porto; striker Fabio Borini on a one-year loan deal from Sunderland; Ricardo Rodríguez from Wolfsburg, Hakan Calhanoglu from Bayer Leverkusen, Mateo Musacchio from Villarreal and Franck Kessie, who joins on a season-long loan from Atalanta.
AC Milan, the seven-time European champions who were recently sold by long-time owner Silvio Berlusconi to a Chinese consortium, secured a place in next season's Europa League.
