Andrea Petagna (Italian pronunciation: [anˈdrɛa peˈtaɲɲa]; born 30 June 1995) is an Italian professional footballer who plays as a striker for Serie B club Vicenza Calcio on loan from Milan. He is a Italy U19 international.
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. 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.
At the start of the 2013–14 season, Petagna was promoted full-time to the first team. 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. 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. Sampdoria also had option to make the deal a co-ownership at the end of the season-long loan spell. 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. He finished the season with three more senior appearances, while being mainly employed by the under-19 squad managed by Filippo Inzaghi. The side won the Viareggio Cup in February, defeating Anderlecht in the final, with Petagna scoring the temporary equaliser in the 3–1 win.
Petagna won five caps for Italy under-16 between 2010 and 2011. In 2011, he won one further cap for Italy under-17. He went on to be capped for Italy under-18, making eight appearances and scoring two goals in 2013. In 2013 he was also capped for Italy under-19, making his first appearance on 24 April.
