Transfer news: Arsenal and Juventus eye Sheffield United striker Diego De Girolamo - reports
The 18-year-old has been capped for Italy at youth level
Friday 18 April 2014
Juventus and Arsenal are reportedly interested in the Sheffield United striker Diego De Girolamo.
De Girolamo was born in Chesterfield but has played for Italy at both Under-18 and Under-19 level as his father is Italian.
The 18-year-old decided to represent Italy at youth level after Arrigo Sacchi, the legendary Milan coach, rang him up with a personal plea to play for the Azzurri.
De Girolamo, who could yet play for England, has been reportedly recommended to the Serie A leaders Juventus by Italian scouts, who watched him score in recent friendly against Germany. He has also been watched by scouts from the Gunners.
