Fernando Torres will make his Serie A debut for AC Milan in today’s match at Parma.
The Spanish striker joined the Rossoneri outfit on a two-year loan deal from Chelsea earlier this month.
AC Milan coach Filippo Inzaghi was delighted to land Torres after the club sold last season’s top scorer Mario Balotelli to Liverpool this summer.
“I’m delighted with our summer signings,” Inzaghi said. “I really wanted Torres to join us and my request was satisfied. Now it is up to me to get him back to the levels he is capable of and I will study his best position.”
Here are Torres' top ten goals in his career:
Meanwhile, Inter Milan defender Marco Andreolli has warned his team-mates to keep a close eye on Sassuolo striker Simone Zaza in Sunday’s game at the San Siro.
The Nerazzurri go into the encounter in Milan looking for their first win of the season after being held to a goalless draw at Torino in their Serie A opener.
Andreolli, a former Sassuolo player, is wary of the threat posed by Zaza, who scored on his Italy debut in midweek. “Zaza is the man of the moment,” Andreolli said. “We will need to pay particular attention to him. We have prepared well for this game and we are really determined to win our first game at the San Siro this season.”
Fiorentina fans will have to wait a little bit longer to see summer signing Micah Richards in action.
The England defender is unlikely to feature in today’s home game against Genoa.
“I’ve played very little in recent weeks and I’ve only had a few training sessions with the group,” Richards said. “I still need a bit of time in order to be in top condition.”
