Out-of-favour AC Milan striker Alberto Gilardino has signed for Fiorentina, the two Serie A clubs said on Wednesday.
The 25-year-old endured a frustrating season where he was often behind Filippo Inzaghi and Alexandre Pato in the pecking order at the San Siro.
He managed just seven league goals and missed out on a place in Italy's Euro 2008 squad despite helping the Azzurri win the World Cup two years ago.
Milan have made clear they want to bring in at least one striker in the close season, with Chelsea's Didier Drogba and Andriy Shevchenko on their list of targets alongside Barcelona's Samuel Eto'o.
Gilardino would have faced extra competition next term so has decided to move on, ironically to the team that beat Milan to the final Champions League qualifying place in Serie A this season.
The former Parma forward, who has spent three years at Milan, almost quit the club in the last close season.
