AC Milan have completed the signing of talented Sampdoria midfielder Andrea Poli, Sky Sports reports.

The 23-year-old, who spent part of the 2011-12 season on loan with cross city rivals Internazionale, put pen to paper on a co-ownership agreement between the Rossoneri and the Genovese club and will now head to the San Siro.

And now coach Massimo Allegri has now pledged to continue to tweek the squad in order to avoid another sluggish start like the one they suffered last season.

“We want to improve our position from last season,” he told

“As usual we will be going all out and we only lost twice in 2013 so it was not by chance that we picked up a lot of good results in a row.

“That helped the team develop but we have to start from this point once more.

“We will change a few things compared to past years. The team knows how to play with three strikers as well as a playmaker, so it does not change that much.

“We will have four at the back and three in midfield and then we will see on a game by game basis. We will change it but we are looking to play with a playmaker.”

Poli also expressed his delight at sealing the move to Milan: “I am very happy to be here. Wearing the Milan shirt is a dream come true because I am a Milan fan.”
