Giovinco good enough for Barca

Sebastian Giovinco has the technical ability to become an important player for a top club, says the man who saw him grow at Juventus.

The Italian international is having a season to remember at Parma and he’s been paired with a summer return to Juve or even a switch to European giants Barcelona.

“Barcelona, like so many other clubs, are always on the look out for players,” Franco Ceravolo, who was responsible for Juve’s youth sector, told TMW.

“Sebastian is making himself known in Italian football and I think he would fit in well at Barcelona given the way that they play under Coach Pep Guardiola.

“He would be an asset to all of the big European clubs though because football is not only about physique…”

The pint-sized forward, nicknamed the Atomic Ant, is currently co-owned between the Gialloblu and the Old Lady.

The 25-year-old has scored 10 goals in 29 League games so far this season.
