Saints And Wolves Interested In Italian Striker
Friday, 29th Jun 2018 08:44

According to media reports Saints are alongside Wolves in considering a bid for Atalanta's Italian International striker Andrea Petagna

The Italian media are suggesting that Andrea Petagna is the latest player to be scouted by Premier League clubs with a fee of around £10-12 million enough to take him to England

On the face of it though his stats aren't that impressive, he has scored only 9 Serie A goals in 63 appearances for Atalanta.

Turning 23 on Saturday he started at AC Milan, but made only 3 league appearances and spent much of his time out on loan, but without much success.

It was while at Ascoli on loan in Serie B in 2015/16 season he started to attract attention and Atalanta signed him permanently from AC Milan in January 2016, although they loaned him straight back to Ascoli for the rest of the season.

In 2016/17 he was a regular in the Atalanta team and although he scored only 5 goals in 34 Serie A Games this was enough to earn him his first and so far only cap for Italy in March 2017 coming on as a substitute in a friendly against the Netherlands.

Last season was pretty much the same as the previous Petagna scored 4 goals in 29 appearances, not a record that will excite either Saints or Wolves fans.

He sounds awful: Carrillo Mk II. I can't believe an ambitious club like Wolves are really interested in him.

Agent working hard to shift him, by the sounds of it!

Alan Shearer was still learning and NOT yet a goal machine when Blackburn bought him from us. Remember that.
I say bring him in. He will also cure Gabbiadini´s feeling of being isolated in a foreign country with a difficult language (for an italian), I´m sure.

I can't see it myself. I'm certainly in favour of a big target man. Giving Carillo a chance WAS an option, but seems less likely if he's been marginalised,(not going to china)?
I won't relax until we've got the experienced CB in and I'd love to know whether Ely is the creative guy we need or we're still looking?
