AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani has confirmed Nnamdi Oduamadi will start preseason with Massimiliano Allegri's first team squad.

The young Nigerian impressed Galliani with his hat-trick in the Super Eagles' Confederations Cup victory over Tahiti.

Gazzetta dello Sport says Galliani has announced Oduamadi will be given the chance in preseason to earn a place in the first team squad.

Milan coaching staff regard Oduamadi, who spent last season on-loan with Varese, similar to Robinho and the youngster admits it would "be a dream come true" to play with Mario Balotelli.
