The Sunday Sun is reporting today that we may be interested in young 20 year-old striker Robert Acquafresca from Itay.
Robert Acquafresca – looks a star in the making
Although he currently plays on loan at Cagliari, Robert Acquafresca’s contract has been owned by Inter-Milan since 2005 , and the boy doesn’t turn 21 years old until September.
He has already played 32 times for Cagliari and scored 10 goals.
Before he joined Cagliari in 2007, he had played on loan for Treviso 43 times since 2005, and scored 11 goals, so he certainly seems a young star in the making, at just 20 years old.
The youngster was born in Turin to an Italian father and a Polish mother and joined the Torino youth system in 1993 at the age of 6, moving to Treviso in 2005 on loan, after Inter-Milan bought up his contract.
The 6′ striker has also represented Italy at every age group since he was 16, and has played 8 times for the Italy Under-21 side with 5 goals.
Not surprisingly, the Polish Football Federation have been trying to get him to play for their National team, but in March of this year he finally opted to represent Italy at international level.Â We assume that pleased his father, who is Italian. 😀
This boy seems a good player and would be a great buy now for Newcastle, and definitely one for the future for Newcastle.
