Sassuolo CEO Giovanni Carnevali feels that striker and Inter target Gianluca Scamacca definitely has what it takes to make the move to a top club.
Speaking to Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport in an interview published in today’s print edition, the executive praised the 23-year-old and suggested that he would have no trouble settling into a big club.
Scamacca has had something of a breakout campaign with the Neroverdi this season, which has only intensified the interest in him from major clubs in Serie A and around Europe.
It looks to be the Nerazzurri who have the keenest interest in Scamacca’s siganture, however, and reports suggest that he would also be keen on making the move.
Given that the striker has never played with the pressure of a club who compete for league titles and the Champions League some questions would inevitably be raised about his suitability to make the step up.
Carnevali, however, has no such doubts about the 23-year-old, stating that “I have full confidence in Gianluca’s qualities and in the strength of his character.”
“He won’t bow to the pressure,” the executive went on, “psychologically he is solid, a fighter. Gianluca still has a lot of room for improvement, he hasn’t yet reached full technical maturity.”
He emphasized that “We still need to give him the chance to make mistakes in a few games and not expect him to be perfect at 23.”
Asked whether this meant that Scamacca isn’t ready for a move to a top club, Carnevali replied “No, on the contrary. For his technical growth and personal maturity, he can handle the responsibilities of a demanding club very well.”
“And playing among already established top players, Gianluca will grow even more,” he predicted.
