The Italian striker has re-joined the Rossoneri following a miserable year at Anfield, during which he made 28 appearances for the Merseyside club - scoring just two goals in all competitions.
He finished the previous campaign with a chance conversion rate of just 2.8%, while creating a mere seven chances for his teammates and seeing success in only 70% of his attempted passes.
Furthermore, while the 25-year-old has given up a chunk of his £90,000 per week salary at Anfield, his parent club will still have to make a hefty contribution to his weekly wage packet.
Here is how Twitter reacted to the troublesome striker’s departure.
