Juventus forward Sebastian Giovinco is a summer transfer target of English Premier League sides Tottenham Hotspur, Liverpool and Arsenal. Italian forward has also attracted interest from Olympiacos, AS Monaco and is likely to leave Turin this summer to reignite his international career.
Juventus strengthened their forward line with the additions of Carlos Tevez and Fernando Llorrente last summer. The arrival of the duo has pushed versatile forward Sebastian Giovinco further down the pecking order at Old Lady. When fellow Italians were playing and scoring goals regularly in Serie A and other leagues, Giovinco had to settle for a spot on the Juventus bench. Sebastian Giovinco started only 8 games in Serie A and in Europe combined, and his goal tally of 2 explains Cesare Prandelli’s decision to omit the forward from Italy’s World Cup squad.
Juventus academy product Sebastian Giovinco is playing with the Bianconeri squad since 2006 and his versatility has been a blessing for them on many occasions. Formica Atomica has played all the forward roles for the Serie A winners, and is a unique player considering his playing style and abilities.
Sebastian Giovinco has only played 570 minutes of competitive football this season. 27-year-old forward is looking for regular playing time to reignite his international career. The diminutive forward has only one year left on his contract and the interest is mounting on him with English Premier League sides Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur among his suitors. Greek side Olympiacos and France’s mega rich Ligue 1 outfit AS Monaco are also rumoured to be interested in the Italian striker.
Sebastian Giovinco’s agent Andrea D’Amico isn’t surprised by the number of teams queuing for the Juventus forward.
“[Sebastian] Giovinco had a season that individually could’ve been more satisfying, but when called into action he proved what a champion he is. At Juventus there are no other players with his characteristics. Clearly, he needs to play more consistently. I know Antonio Conte wanted him at Juventus and always defended him against criticism, so represents a certainty in his sporting life.”
“I am not surprised that Arsenal and Tottenham are being linked, considering the quality of Arsene Wenger’s choices and the fine level of Tottenham’s squad. However, they are not the only clubs. Olympiacos, Monaco and Liverpool? There are many other teams, as Giovinco is appreciated everywhere. Before anything we’ll talk to Juventus and then we’ll see.
“Inter? For now I’ve not spoken to Inter about Giovinco. Other Serie A clubs? I don’t remember…”
His words points to a future outside Serie A for Sebastian Giovinco. Can Arsenal, Liverpool or Tottenham Hotspur bring the Juventus forward to English Premier League?
