Juventus attacker Sebastian Giovinco’s agent has been speaking about his client’s future.
The 27-year-old’s future is currently wrapped up in uncertainty as the Italy international is not getting enough playing time.
Under Massimiliano Allegri this season, Giovinco has made just five appearances in Serie A, creating five chances, and having 92% pass accuracy and 63% shot accuracy in the process.
Giovinco has been at Juventus his entire career, but he has never really been seen as a regular first-team player.
Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur both have been linked with a move for the talented Italian in the January transfer window, but his agent claims that the attacker is not interested in leaving Juventus.
“Giovinco to Arsenal? At the moment only Juventus can negotiate with him, later on however things can change since he has an expiring contract,” Andrea D’Amico told GianlucaDiMarzio.com.
”I haven’t met many times with Juventus, on our end we have always been open to it,” added D’Amico. “Fiorentina? We know they like the player, but we’ll need to evaluate the project.
“Giovinco is 27 years old, he’s in the prime of his career and he has had some important experiences at Juventus.
"In my opinion giving up on him is a risk, there aren’t players with his quality and attributes: the fact that Conte has selected him to national team proves it.
“If he continues this way, we are certain there will be many offers: continuity is fundamental in this job, it gives confidence and mental motivation, which are fundamental.”
It seems that Giovinco’s main priority is to remain at Juventus, but with his contract running out at the end of the season, he is certainly going to think about his future from now on.
The Italian was rated highly when he was young, but at 27 there is a suspicion that he was overrated all those years ago.
Although talented and blessed with versatility to play as an attacking midfielder and a second striker, Giovinco is simply not someone required by Arsenal or Tottenham.
Arsenal do not need another attacking player, while Tottenham should look at better, younger and ‘more proven’ options than Giovinco.
