Club career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Agazzi was a youth product of Atalanta. He start his professional career in Südtirol.

Triestina[edit]

In 2004 Triestina signed Agazzi from Atalanta on loan.[2] In June 2005, Triestina signed Agazzi on a co-ownership deal, for €40,000 fee.[3] In June 2006 Triestina signed Agazzi outright for an additional €250,000 fee.[4]

Since 2008–09 season, Agazzi has been the first choice goalkeeper, after the departure of Generoso Rossi.

Cagliari[edit]

On 9 July 2009 Cagliari signed the goalkeeper from Serie B club Triestina in a joint ownership deal, for €575,000[5][6] on a 4-year deal. He would continue to play for Triestina until June 2010.[6]

However, on 1 February 2010 he returned to Cagliari, 5 months earlier, on a temporary deal for €1.2 million loan fee.[5][7] Triestina also acquired Agazzi outright for €500.[5][8] Co-currently, Triestina signed Alex Calderoni as a replacement.[9] On 21 June 2010, Cagliari signed the keeper outright from the relegated side for €50,000 fee.[5][10] (later Triestina was re-admitted to Serie B)[11]

He became the first choice goalkeeper for Cagliari in 2010–11 season after the original one, Federico Marchetti, was frozen by the club as punishment. Ivan Pelizzoli, former internationals, also hinted he is the backup of Agazzi instead of Marchetti at the start of season.[12] In July 2011 he signed a new 3-year contract with the Serie A club.[13]

Chievo[edit]

Cagliari and Agazzi did not form any agreement on new contract, thus in January 2014 Agazzi was transferred to Chievo, with Marco Silvestri moved to Cagliari on a temporary deal.[14]

Milan[edit]

On 22 May 2014, Milan announced the summer signing of Agazzi from Chievo, with the transfer taking effect from 1 July.[15] News of Agazzi's arrival came just a day after the renewal of Christian Abbiati's contract at the Milanese-based club. Agazzi would replace Marco Amelia who was not offered a contract extension by Milan.

Middlesbrough.[edit]

On 29 August 2015, Middlesbrough announced the signing on loan of Agazzi from Milan.

Cesena[edit]

On 18 July 2016, Agazzi left Milan and joined Cesena on a permanent deal.[16]

Alessandria & Ascoli[edit]

On 18 July 2017 Agazzi signed a one-year contract with Alessandria.[17] He was assigned number 22 shirt.[18] On 30 January 2018, he was exchanged with Riccardo Ragni of Ascoli.[19][20][21] Agazzi also wore number 22 shirt for his new club.[22]
