AC Milan have signed one of Italian football's most promising young talents, the 17-year-old Nicola Pozzi, from Serie C side AC Cesena.

Talented youngster
Milan are reported to paid a fee in the region of €2m for Pozzi, who has signed a contract until 2008. The young striker is likely to begin his career at the Giuseppe Meazza under the watchful eye of Milan legend Franco Baresi, now coach of the club's Primavera squad. Baresi could well use Pozzi in the prestigious Viareggio youth tournament next month.

Impressive credentials
Pozzi was also coveted by Juventus FC and his credentials are impressive. He scored five goals in nine matches for Italy's Under-17 team and has also won two Under-18 caps. At Milan, of course, he finds Andriy Shevchenko, Filippo Inzaghi and Jon Dahl Tomasson ahead of him but it is not unrealistic to think he will play some part this season, most likely starting on the bench.

Champions League
Pozzi, who has scored four goals for Cesena this season, is eligible for the remainder of Milan's UEFA Champions League campaign and could take the place of the departed Rivaldo in their squad. Milan face AC Sparta Praha in the tournament's first knockout round on 24 February
ohohoho so you may wonder about him
Forza SuperPozzi!!!
