Inter Milan’s 21 year-old full-back Davide Santon seems to be interesting Newcastle.
Davide Santon – 21 year-old Italian International
There are reports coming out of Italy that Newcastle may try to sign the 6’2″ full-back, who can play in either full-back position.
The youngster has played 7 times for Italy, and all the Italian Youth sides, and 12 times for the Italy U21 side, and he has been at Inter since he was 16 years-old, and has played 51 times for the Milan giants.
He joined Ravenna Calcio, based in Calcio, when he was he was a 10 year-old and the full-back has spent the last six months on loan at Cesena, where he played 11 times.
The youngster was at one time considered to be the natural successor to the great Paolo Maldini, but things have not gone well for the lad this year.
This player looks very good, and the reports suggest he is interested in joining Newcastle, although Roma and Schalke 04 are also said to be interested.
We have no idea whether these reports out of Italy are accurate.
