MILAN (AP) - AC Milan has received Italy forward Mattia Destro on loan from Roma.

The Serie A club confirmed the deal on Friday.

Destro travelled up to Milan the previous day for a medical, and was mobbed by fans on his arrival at the city’s main train station.

Destro, who will wear the No. 9 shirt, was one of the best strikers last season, with a goal every 95.2 minutes on average. However, the 23-year-old has struggled for playing time this season and has started just eight matches, scoring five times.

Milan has the right to buy Destro at the end of the season for a reported 16 million euros ($18 million).

It is a return to Milan for Destro, who was part of Inter Milan’s youth teams.
