Inter Milan have continued their summer dealings by adding Antonio Candreva to the ranks today.

The 29-year-old has signed a four-year-deal with the nerazzurri and the fee involved hasn't been disclosed but most reports agree on a 22 million fee spread over the next four years and a further three million in bonuses

The winger has selected the number 87 jersey, which he adorned throughout his time with Serie A rivals Lazio. Candreva leaves the aquile after four seasons where he racked up over 150 appeareances in sky blue while scoring over half a century of goals in the process too.

Very happy and very determined

Soon after the official announcement, Candreva spoke exclusively to Inter Channel and admitted to being "very happy" about the move and "very determined [to suceed]."

He said he "had not heard from the manager" just yet but "certainly will tomorrow."

"I will give everything for this shirt" he stated and continued to say "I will try to make my mark with in this very great shirt."

He concluded saying he "can't wait" to meet up with his new comrades.

Deal number four

Candreva's arrival at the San Siro takes Inter's summer additions to four. Caner Erkin was the first through the door and was soon followed by Argentine duo Ever Banega and Cristian Ansaldi, who was officially announced just days ago.

The eighteen time scudetto winners are showing no sign of slowing down either with a deal to bring Brazilian starlet Gabigol to Italy progressing nicely as per various reports. Inter have moved ahead of the likes of Juventus and Barcelona in the race for the Santos star and one of the deciding factors in this is that the nerazzurri can guarantee him a starting role unlike the others.
