Sampdoria loan signing Andrea Petagna says he learned plenty from his time with AC Milan's senior players.

The youngster signed for Samp last week.

"I am here to do the best I possibly can. My idol is Balotelli, even if Pazzini is certainly the player I most model myself after," said Petagna.

"Pazzo told me about Sampdoria, that they have great fans and a wonderful club. I settled in quickly, though I am still looking for a house. I've found a new family here."
