A Bologna youth product, he spent the early years of his professional career on loan to minor league clubs before playing his first full Serie A season in 2010–11. On 23 August 2011 he signed a new 5-year contract with Bologna, but left the club only a week later to join Palermo in a co-ownership bid, for €3.5 million.
In summer 2012, he joined ACF Fiorentina. However he was injured in September 2012. On 12 January 2013, he moved on loan to Siena, and then spent the 2013–14 season on loan at his old club Bologna, playing only nine times.
