Club career


Signed by A.C. Milan from then-Serie C1 side Cesena on January 2004, he was successively loaned to Napoli and Pescara, before being sent on loan to Empoli F.C. for two consecutive seasons (2005–06 and 2006–07).


In 2007–08 season, his status was changed to co-owned by both sides, for €750,000[1] (that season Empoli also signed Luca Antonini (€1M), Lino Marzoratti (€0.75M) and Ignazio Abate (€0.9M) in co-ownership deals), and in 16 June 2008 Empoli got full ownership for €3.25 million (Pozzi) and €1.5 million (Marzoratti )[2][3] in exchange of Antonini (€2.75 million)[3] and Abate (€2 million)[3] who return to AC Milan, effectively made Emppoli paid €3.4 million in net for Pozzi and Marzoratti, as well as the special loan of Abate and Antonini.

On 9 December 2007, he scored all four goals in Empoli's 4–1 victory over Cagliari. However, he suffered a season-ending knee injury after netting a brace in a 3–1 defeat of Napoli on February 17, and will be sidelined for six months, effectively ruling him out of the Azzurrini squad for the 2008 Olympics.

Pozzi also represented Italy at the Under-21 level.


On Monday 31 August 2009 Sampdoria announced via their website the loan signing of Pozzi for €180,000[4] with the option to make the signing permanent.[5] In June 2010, Sampdoria decided to sign him outright,[6] for €5.2 million in a 5-year contract.[4][7]


After playing five seasons well at Sampdoria, Pozzi moved to Serie A side Parma on 31 January 2014, with Stefano Okaka moved to opposite direction,[8] signing a three-and-a-half year deal. The deal was a cashless swap, as both Pozzi and Okaka were valued for €2 million.[9]

On 2 February 2015 Pozzi joined A.C. Chievo Verona in a temporary deal.[10]


On 31 August 2015 he was signed by Vicenza in a 2-year deal.[11] He took no.9 shirt from Stefano Pettinari.[12]
