(Reuters) - Inter Milan have signed midfielder Roberto Gagliardini on a two-year loan deal from Atalanta with the option to make the move permanent, the Serie A club said on Wednesday (

The Atalanta youth-player made his professional debut with the Bergamo-based club in 2013 but spent two years on loan to second-tier Italian clubs.

"I'm happy to be at Inter Milan, it is a dream come true," the 22-year-old Gagliardini, who has made 13 leagues appearances this season, said on the club's website.

"I hope to help the team achieve the prestigious goals that this club deserves."

Italian media report that Inter Milan paid two million euros ($2.10 million) for Gagliardini and will need to pay a further 20 million euros plus bonus to buy the player.

Inter Milan, seventh in the standings, host 11th-placed Chievo Verona on Saturday.
