Luca Antonelli (born 11 February 1987) is an Italian footballer who plays as a left back for Empoli.
Antonelli was born in Monza. He is the son of Roberto Antonelli, a former footballer who played for Milan from 1977 until 1982 as a striker.
After spending a few seasons in the A.C. Milan youth teams, Antonelli made his first team debut in a Coppa Italia game against Brescia on 8 November 2006. On 23 December, he made also his Serie A debut, in a match against Udinese.
In the summer of 2007 Antonelli was loaned out to Serie B club Bari, but he impressed so much that during the January transfer window Parma secured him on loan from Milan for the rest of the Serie A season. He made his first appearance for the Gialloblu against Livorno on 16 March 2008.
In June 2008, Parma had acquired half of the contractual rights from Milan, for €750,000.While the following summer, he was fully transferred for another €2.5 million, which Milan made a financial income of €1.75 million as the value of the retained half had increased from €0.75 million to €2.5 million.
In January 2011, Antonelli was transferred to Genoa for €7 million. Genoa also signed Alberto Paloschi for €4.35 million and sold Raffaele Palladino (€3M) and Francesco Modesto (€2.5M) to Parma.The club soon sold Domenico Criscito as Antonelli had succeeded Criscito as full back.
In February 2015, Antonelli moved back to his debut club Milan, for a fee of €4.5 millionsigning a three-and-a-half-year contract. On his debut for his return to Milan on 7 February 2015, Antonelli scored a goal from a corner kick off a header to tie the match with Juventus at 1–1, which did not prove decisive, as Milan eventually lost the match 3–1.
On 11 August 2018, Antonelli transferred to Empoli.
Antonelli made his senior international debut with the Italian national team on 3 September 2010 against Estonia in Tallinn.
