Manchester City are suggested to be posing a threat to the potential suitors of Atalanta U19 striker Roberto Piccoli (18), who has scored a remarkable six goals in six UEFA Youth League games so far this season, according to Calciomercato as relayed by Sport Witness.
Piccoli has started the 2019/20 campaign in brilliant goalscoring form, and has unsurprisingly caught the attention of several clubs. The Italy U19 centre-forward has scored 12 goals and registered an assist in 14 appearances for Atalanta’s U19 side.
Although Roberto Piccoli is yet to register a senior appearance for Atalanta’s first-team squad, the youngster’s performances in the UEFA Youth League have ‘stunned everyone’, according to Calciomercato.
As translated by Sport Witness, the report’s headline specifically states ‘From Milan to [Pep] Guardiola: all are crazy for Piccoli’. In fact, scouts from a number of European clubs are monitoring the teenager’s progress. AC Milan, among others, are set to face ‘danger’ from Manchester City for his signature.
In his total 34 appearances for Atalanta Primavera, the 18-year-old has scored 22 goals and provided two assists along the way. As for his form with the Italy U19 side, Roberto Piccoli has scored five goals in 20 appearances.
