Alberto Paloschi (Italian pronunciation: [alˈbɛrto paˈloski]; born 4 January 1990) is an Italian professional footballer who plays as a striker for Atalanta.[3]

Club career[edit]

Milan[edit]

Paloschi won the National Under-17s Championship with Milan in the 2006–07 season. He scored 3 goals in a 4–0 win over Genoa in the final.[4]

Paloschi made his professional debut on 20 December 2007, scoring in the first leg of the Coppa Italia round of 16 against Catania, and scored a second goal in the return leg on 16 January 2008.

He made his Serie A debut on 10 February 2008 against Siena replacing Serginho, and scored the game's only goal with his first touch, just seventeen seconds after coming on.[5] He started the next Serie A match against Livorno. On 19 March he scored Milan's only goal in a 2–1 home loss against Sampdoria.

Parma[edit]

Upon Ronaldinho's signing for the club, Paloschi has said that, as his first-team chances were threatened, he would consider a move (preferably on loan) away from San Siro.[6] On 27 August he moved to Parma, who'd just been relegated to Serie B in a co-ownership deal worth €2.25 million.[7] He scored 12 goals in his first season with Parma, helping the club return to the top flight after only one season in the Serie B. In June 2009, Milan and Parma reached an agreement which would see Paloschi return to Parma for the 2009–10 season.

Genoa[edit]

On 3 January 2011, Parma sold the 50% registration rights of Paloschi that the club held to Genoa for €4.35 million[8][9] and signed 50% registration rights of Raffaele Palladino from Genoa for €3 million,[10] which Milan and Juventus retained the other 50% registration rights respectively, effectively made Genoa pay Parma €1.35 million in cash plus Palladino for Paloschi. Genoa also signed Luca Antonelli for €7 million[9] and sold Francesco Modesto to Parma for €2.5 million, effectively made Genoa pay €4.5 million cash plus Modesto to Parma for Antonelli.[9]

Paloschi made 12 appearances for Genoa, scoring 2 goals in the process. In June 2011 Milan bought back Paloschi from Genoa for €5 million, €650,000 over the previous fee.[8]

Return to Milan[edit]

At the end of 2010–11 season, Paloschi returned to Milan for €5 million on a five-year contract.[8][11] Paloschi immediately left for Chievo in an initial temporary deal, with an option to buy.[12]

Chievo[edit]

On 8 August 2011, Paloschi joined Chievo on loan for the 2011–12 season for a fee of €450,000.[8][13] On 18 September 2011 he scored his first goal for Chievo in a 2–1 defeat against Parma. On 22 January 2012, Paloschi scored a brace against Lecce. In July 2012 the loan was renewed for another year for free.[13][14] On 31 January 2013, Chievo signed Paloschi in a co-ownership deal for €3.5 million.[15][16] On 19 June 2014, Chievo purchased the remaining 50% registration rights of Paloschi from Milan for another €3 million.[17][18] On 30 June 2015, Paloschi signed a new four-year contract with Chievo.[19]

Swansea City[edit]

On 29 January 2016, Paloschi joined Premier League club Swansea City on a three-and-a-half-year deal for a fee believed to be in the range of £8 million.[20] He opened his Premier League scoring account against Tottenham Hotspur on 28 February.

Atalanta[edit]

On 1 July 2016, Paloschi returned to Italy, signing a deal with Atalanta.

International career[edit]

Paloschi scored two goals for Italy in the 2008 UEFA European Under-19 Football Championship.

On 18 November 2008, he made his debut for the Italy U-21 squad in a friendly match against Germany. He was selected to represent Italy in the 2009 U-21 Championship in Sweden. In March 2014 Paloschi received a call-up from Cesare Prandelli.[21] Paloschi was re-called by Antonio Conte on 31 May 2015, again for the training camp.[22]
