AC Milan have signed Italy midfielder Sandro Tonali from relegated Brescia, the Serie A club announced Wednesday.

In a statement, Milan said they had brought in rising star Tonali on loan with an option to buy, with the 20-year old realizing his dream move to the club for which his idol Gennaro Gattuso played for 13 years.

Milan did not specify the details of the deal nor the length of the loan period but Italian media report Tonali has signed a five-year contract with the seven-time European champion.

Tonali's short move across the northern region of Lombardy was made official after the midfielder had completed his medical Wednesday afternoon, after which he stopped to greet his new supporters.

His performances for Brescia last season earned widespread praise and comparisons with Andrea Pirlo, even though he is such a fan of Gattuso and Milan that he asked the World Cup winner, now coach of Napoli, if he could wear the No 8 as his hero did during his glory days. 

Milan kick-off their Serie A season on September 21 when they host Bologna, four days after starting their Europa League campaign in a qualifying match at Shamrock Rovers.
