Scouting: Seba Giovinco

Sebastian Giovinco caught the eye of Talking Reds scout tarek_red-devil_5 during Italy's victory over Sweden...

Player name: Sebastian Giovinco
Position: Attacking Midfielder
Club: Italy, Juventus
Age: 22

Match Scouted: Sweden 1-2 Italy, 19 June 2009

Key Moment: Brilliantly brought the ball down and turned in one movement before flicking a glorious pass over the top to Mario Balotelli who curled in a stunning opening goal.

Strengths: A player who's always on the move with excellent dribbling skills, he's capable of producing something from nothing. He provides decent delivery from set-pieces as he showed when setting up Robert Acquafresca for Italy's second goal against Sweden.

Weaknesses: Improving his physique wouldn't do him any harm.

Suitability: He could play behind the main striker or on the wing where his blistering pace and dribbling skills would give any full-back a torrid time.

Estimated Cost: I can't recall any fees being mentioned and he may be hard to lure away from Juventus, but if anyone can, United can.
