Milan have announced the signing of Brazil striker Luiz Adriano from Shakhtar.
Adriano, who scored nine times in seven UEFA Champions League appearances last season, has signed a contract at San Siro until June 2020.
The 28-year-old’s deal at Shakhtar was set to expire at the end of this year, with initial reports around the transfer suggesting he would move to Italy next January.
But a statement on Milan’s official website confirmed Adriano would join them with immediate effect, with a transfer fee reported to be worth in the region of €8million officially undisclosed.
The statement read: “AC Milan announces that it has today acquired outright from FC Shakhtar Donetsk Luiz Adriano the player who signed a contract expiring on June 30 2020. The player will join the team in the coming days.”
Earlier on Thursday, Milan announced that they had agreed a deal to sign Sevilla forward Carlos Bacca.
The San Siro outfit are working to reshape their squad under new coach Sinisa Mihajlovic following a disappointing 10th-place finish in Serie A last season.
