Andrea Ranocchia

Clubs: AC Arezzo, AS Bari (loan), Genoa CFC, FC Internazionale Milano

• Played youth football for AC Perugia before moving on to Arezzo and making his breakthrough in 2006/07, when his team suffered relegation to Serie C1.

• Genoa assumed half of Ranocchia's playing rights in August 2008 and immediately loaned him to Bari, whom he helped to the Serie B title.

• That convinced the Grifoni to buy him outright but he nonetheless continued his education at Bari the following season, forming a formidable central defensive partnership with fellow future Italian international Leonardo Bonucci, only to suffer a season-ending knee injury in January 2010.

• A member of Italy's 2009 UEFA European Under-21 Championship squad, he played in the Azzurrini's unsuccessful 2011 qualifying campaign before making his senior international debut against Romania in November 2010.

• Inter acquired 50% of Ranocchia's rights in July 2010 but loaned him back to Genoa, where he played 16 Serie A matches before being signed outright by the Nerazzurri in January on a four-and-a-half year deal; made his first start, against Genoa, in a Coppa Italia tie.
