We have always been a very big fan of this player and wonder why he has never really made it at the top level.
But maybe that is all about to change as he has now been linked with Barcelona according to Spanish media outlet Marca:
Sebastian Giovinco is on Barcelona’s hitlist to bolster Luis Enrique’s squad in January. The Italian star’s agent Andrea D’Amico confirmed as much to Rai Sport, stressing that there has been “contact” from the ‘Azulgranas’ with a view to bringing in the Toronto schemer.
The player has been on fire since he moved to America. He has scored a remarkable 24 goals in 34 games for Toronto in MLS and also moved way into double figures on assists.
The 28 year old is obviously playing at a lower level in America but he seems to have reached full maturity as a player at last and we think that a move back to Europe, be it with Barcelona or another top side, is on the cards.
Giovinco has played 23 times for Italy since his debut in 2011 but he never really hit the high notes in his 9 years at Juventus, going out on loan twice in his time there.
Let’s see the speedster in action. Barcelona fans: does Giovinco have the finesse to succeed at Barca?
