Immobile wanted by Lecce

Posted on 18/06/2010


Promising Juventus youth striker Ciro Immobile is being targeted by Serie A newcomers Lecce.

Immobile caught the eye of many talent scouts across Italy last season following his performances for the Bianconeri Primavera side.

He cemented his potential by leading Juventus to the prestigious Viareggio youth title by ending that competition as the top scorer.

Lecce boss Gigi De Canio is understood to be an admirer of the 20-year-old attacker and would like him at his disposal.

Juventus usually loan out promising youngsters to smaller clubs in order to gain experience, but Immobile is a special case.

New Juventus Coach Gigi Del Neri is understood to have asked the club to keep hold of him for the time being.

Del Neri, who joined from Sampdoria, wants to see the boy in pre-season training before allowing him to leave for another side.
