The Udinese forward is one of the most exciting talents in Serie A and has signed for the Nerazzurri on a one-year deal.

The 21-year-old is currently playing for AC Milan, who he played for in Serie B. The Italian side have been looking for a forward for some time and have been linked with the likes of Leonardo Bonucci, but Del Pieros move is a surprise to some fans.

“I like him and I wish him the best,” said one Udinese fan.

Del Pieroes transfer is a step in the right direction for the Italian national team and a boost for the future of Udinese.

“This is a very important step for the national team, especially for the youth system,” said Udinese coach Mauro Biello.

“The first time a young player comes to us we see what he’s capable of and then we put in the time to work with him.

We’re really pleased.”
