Italian Youngsters Linked
Tuesday, 8th Oct 2013 14:14
Town and Newcastle have been keeping tabs on Cagliari youngsters Gianmarco Paulis and Simone Solinas, claim reports in Italy.
Paulis, 18, is a midfielder and 17-year-old Solinas is a striker with Cagliari’s Primavera side, the equivalent of a development squad. Neither has a squad number for the Serie A club’s first team.
British clubs are reported to be taking an increased interest in Italian sides' emerging talent.

This sounds very interesting. Nice to see us broaden our horizons and go over sea's for players. Ladt Italian must have been Matteo Sereni?

Did someone say striker? Bring him in!

Abuja. The striker is a seventeen year old. We already have a good striker in the reserves who is considerably older and possibly more prolific who cannot get a sniff in the first team so what makes you think this lad would have better fortune?

Maybe the italian version of Abidallah and Graven!!

Nice to see us casting our net a little wider than last few years.

AT LAST! We're only about five years behind :/...the quality we need that make the difference are not in this country, if they are then they won't be coming to us that's for sure....get some quality ball players in who will in turn put bums on seats again!

Amazing no serie B club has been looking. Let's strike while the iron is hot.

why is everyone getting so excited by this story? because at this moment theres nothing to confirm this is even correct. its just claims made by sources in Italy. also, while if true, I think its good that we're looking further afield for talent, would it really be worth signing these 2? why do I say that? simple, we've already signed 2 youngsters this year, in Doherty and akunle, on 1 year contracts, and theres no sign of either of them getting even close to the 1st team squad. what we need are players who can step straight into the 1st team if required, not more players for the future. we are supposed to, according to the club, be producing the future players through our academy, so I believe the immediate need is for players up to playing at 1st team level right away. as I say, im not against signing young players but really think they need to be capable of playing in the championship now, rather than later. or the likelihood is we'll be paying them a wage for the next season and then let them go, and I don't see the point in that.
