French winger Biabiany was set to join Milan but the transfer collapsed on Monday after defender Cristiano Zaccardo turned down a move to Parma as part of the swap deal.

Milan moved quickly to acquire the 25-year-old Bonaventura, who has signed a five-year contract at San Siro.

"Once the deal with Biabiany collapsed, we had to act fast and we thought of Bonaventura," AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani told acmilan.com.

"Zaccardo turned down the move and we thought we still needed to sign a player.

"Bonaventura is a great player and a wonderful person. He is still young and has great quality."

Bonaventura scored five goals in 31 Serie A appearances for Atalanta last season.

He made his Italy debut in a 4-0 victory over San Marino in May 2013.

couple of wins and everything is OK! Sorry you still haven't got a striker who can consistently goals. Keep searching. I don't think Liverpool will make top four not even Europa League this time around.

f he can find the right player? Surely the manager of one of Europe's top clubs has a well-researched short-list and has a good idea of who he wants to bring on-board? If I can find the right player sounds like someone going out on Saturday night on the pull, and the nearer you get to midnight the lower your standards drop.
