​AC Milan have officially confirmed the signing of midfielder Rade Krunic, weeks after the deal had been confirmed by Empoli's president Fabrizio Corsi. 


The Bosnian has signed a five-year contract and joins in a reported €8m deal from the Blues.

 A statement on Milan's website read: "AC Milan today welcomes Krunic to the Rossoneri family.


"AC Milan has today announced the acquisition of Rade Krunic from Empoli FC. The Bosnian midfielder has signed a five-year contract with the club."


The deal had been ​broken to the public on June 12th, after Corsi said: "Krunic will play in Milan next season. It closes for €8m." 


Krunic was crucial to Empoli last season, scoring five goals and registering seven assists. Unfortunately he could not prevent Empoli's relegation, meaning a move for the midfielder was always on the cards.

Krunic joins Theo Hernandez and Franck Kessie as​ AC Milan's only official new signings of the window so far, with a deal for Ismael Bennacer expected to be completed soon. The club have needed midfielders, especially following the conclusion of Tiemoue Bakayoko's loan spell with the club.
