AC Milan are keen to restore their pride as Italian and European giants and that has seen them going for reinforcements in the summer transfer window.

The San Siro outfit on Friday completed their seventh signing ahead of the new season as they snapped up right-back Andrea Conti from Atalanta.

Andre Silva, Hakan Calhanoglu, Mateo Musacchio, Ricardo Rodriguez, Franck Kessie and Fabio Borini have all switched to the San Siro, while coach Vincenzo Montella has agreed to a new contract.

Conti, who has penned a five-year deal at San Siro, won his first full Italy cap in May's friendly thrashing of San Marino.

The right-back started 31 Serie A games last season as Atalanta finished fourth in the table, two places above Milan, qualifying for the Europa League as a result.

It is yet to be seen how these additions will reflect on AC Milan's performance for next season.
