Report: Juventus want Fulham reject Marcelo Trotta this summer

The Italian has been in great form since leaving Fulham in January.

Fulham have been producing some quality looking young players recently. Of course, they can't always make the grade. One player who never really got a chance to shine at Fulham was Italian striker Marcelo Trotta.

He arrived in England in 2009, firstly with Manchester City. Three months later he made a move to Fulham, signing a professional contract with the club.

But despite successful loan spells with Wycombe Wanderers and Brentford he never got a chance for Fulham and in January Fulham let him go.

He returned to Italy, joining Serie B side Avellino in a deal reported by Avellino-Calcio to have cost the Italian side just €700,000.

Now it is looking like a poor decision to let him go.

He has three goals in three games for the Italian under-21s and since joining Avellino he has been on fire, netting four times in nine games.

That has reportedly caught the eye of Italian giants Juventus. Calcio Mercato are reporting that Juventus will make a move for the player in the summer.

Despite the fact Avellino have only just signed him Juve, as Italy's top side, would have little trouble snapping him up. The report continues to claim that Juventus would likely co-own him or loan him out to another club, with recent partners Sassuolo a likely benefactor.

It seems Fulham might have made a mistake in this case.
