Andrea Petagna (Italian pronunciation: [anˈdrɛa peˈtaɲɲa]; born 30 June 1995) is an Italian professional footballer who plays as a striker for Serie A club Milan. He is a Italy U19 international.

Club career[edit]

Petagna started his football career in A.C. Milan's youth system, where he was a member of the under-15 squad who won the Campionato Nazionale Giovanissimi in 2010 and a member of the under-17 squad who won the Campionato Nazionale Allievi the following year.[1][2] He made his professional debut on 4 December 2012, coming on as a substitute in the late stages of a UEFA Champions League group stage home game against Zenit St. Petersburg, which Milan lost 0–1.[3]

At the start of the 2013–14 season, Petagna was promoted full-time to the first team.[4] He made his Serie A debut on 24 August 2013, coming on as a late substitute in the opening game, a 2-1 away loss against newly promoted Hellas Verona.[5][6] However, after the acquisition of Alessandro Matri in the late days of the summer transfer window, Milan decided they would let Petagna go on a loan spell to Sampdoria in order to gain some more first team experience.[7] Sampdoria also had option to make the deal a co-ownership at the end of the season-long loan spell.[8] In spite of that, the loan was terminated early and Petagna returned to Milan in January, having made five scoreless appearances during his stay at Sampdoria.[9]

On 18 February 2014, Petagna scored a fine indidivual goal for AC Milan's Primavera side managed by Pippo Inzaghi in the Viareggio Cup final 3-1 victory against Anderlecht.[10]

International career[edit]

Petagna won five caps for Italy under-16 between 2010 and 2011.[11] In 2011, he won one further cap for Italy under-17.[11] He went on to be capped for Italy under-18, making eight appearances and scoring two goals in 2013.[11] In 2013 he was also capped for Italy under-19, making his first appearance on 24 April.[11]
