Verdi came through Milan's youth system but made just two appearances for the club before moving on to Torino.

Having also played for Carpi and Empoli, as well as a brief stint in La Liga with Eibar, the forward has spent the past two seasons with Bologna, scoring 10 goals in 34 Serie A appearances in 2017-18.

Verdi has won four caps for his country, the last of them coming in the friendly draw with Netherlands on June 6.
