Sebastian Giovinco’s future remains in the balance, as Serie B side Benevento – on the verge of promotion – are new candidates for his signature.
The Atomic Ant is looking to his next move after joining Al-Hilal in Riyadh, with Parma the favourites ahead of Vasco da Gama or Botafogo in Brazil.
Now Il Mattino newspaper claims Benevento have contacted his representatives to ask about a different Serie A option.
Benevento are currently in Serie B, but guaranteed promotion after streaking 20 points clear of second-placed Crotone.
Their coach is Pippo Inzaghi and they are eager to invest for next season in the top flight.
