Marco Andreolli has conceded that Sevilla represent his "last chance" to prove himself at the highest level.
The 29-year-old joined the Europa League winners on a season-long loan deal from Inter Milan late last month, having previously struggled to establish himself at San Siro and with his former club Roma.
Speaking at his unveiling, the defender admitted that it was now or never in terms of his career at a big club.
"This is my last chance [to relaunch my career] after not playing much for Roma and Inter. I have ambition and confidence in my ability to meet the high expectations of this great club and improve further," he said.
Andreolli was capped on 24 occasions by Italy at Under-21 level, but he is yet to represent the senior side.
