AC Milan had a scout present in Frosinone last night as Italy’s U21 side played a friendly against Romania, which ended 4-2 to the Azzurrini.
Romania actually stormed into a two-goal lead as a Canestrelli own-goal and a Racovitan header had the away side flying, but Mulattieri halved the deficit before a 10-minute hat-trick from Canestrelli completed an impressive comeback.
The first is striker Lorenzo Lucca, given that the 21-year-old Pisa forward – who has 6 goals and 2 assists in 13 appearances across league and cup this season – has been heavily linked with Milan. However, he remains an unused substitute.
Andrea Cambiaso has also been linked with Milan and the 21-year-old Genoa left-back came on at half-time. Then there is the young midfielder Samuele Ricci who continues to impress with Empoli, and he played 62 minutes with Milan scouts continuing to follow him. His team-mate Fabiano Parisi was also being observed as the left-back came on at the interval.
Then there is 19-year-old winger Matteo Cancellieri of Hellas Verona, Simone Canestrelli – a 21-year-old defender for Crotone who scored a hat-trick – plus Pietro Pellegri and Lorenzo Colombo.
