UDINE. Luciano Spalletti with his Napoli on one side and, above all, Gian Piero Gasperini riding Atalanta on the other. Here are the names of the two main admirers in Italy of Fetuncial Betoand that is enough to make us think that even the Portuguese center forward, just like other talents featured in the last season at Juventus, has his suitors at the door.
They know it well in Bergamo, where Gasperini has made it clear that the club wants to win and that he is willing to invest heavily in a striker. What the Dea technician instead did not say, but only confided to the insiders, is that Beto would be a very welcome first choice in case Tobacco Zapata o Luis Muriel they should pack their bags.
In Naples, however, the name of Beto has already been associated with what many fear under Vesuvius, or after Osimhen, given that Aurelio De Laurentiis would not oppose the sale for a sum between 90 and 100 million euros. In that case Beto would be the ideal replacement, according to “Big Luciano” Spalletti.
Atalanta and Napoli have already asked for information, but Udinese doesn’t even seem to want to talk about it for the coming season. Gino Pozzo, in fact, knows well that the deal made twelve months ago with Portimonense, to which Beto has already been fully paid, already smells of guaranteed capital gain, because those 11 goals scored in 28 games in the first season in Serie A, from the class ’98, represent only the beginning of his career at Udinese.
A path that will resume from 4 July, after the injury to the right thigh flexor remedied on 10 April in Venice. In short, according to the intentions of the company, it should not be Beto to undress the black and white, but Gerard Deulofeu“Betrothed” to Naples, Nacho Pussetto which is expected at Watford, after the loan, e Ilija Nestorovskiwhich has expired and has not renewed.
For the Macedonian there is the possibility of reaching Pussetto at Watford, or examining the proposals of Lecce and the offers from the Emirates. Besides Beto, the only one to stay will almost certainly be Isaac Success.
So three out of five will leave, and the company is already working to remodel the department, starting with a first tip that could also represent after Beto.
The confirmation comes from Ghana, where Udinese will be watching closely Franck Mbella Etouga, the young Cameroonian striker born in 2001 of Asante Kotoko. His agent, Amadou Fontem Tigana, told Happy FM that a group of Juventus observers led by Pierpaolo Marino will be present on Saturday 18 in Ghana to observe live the player engaged in the match against Accra Lions.
Mbella is the league’s top scorer with 21 goals in 28 games in what is his debut season. «The future of Etouga is like that of Sadio Mane. I get something like five thousand calls for him from Africa and Europe, ”said Tigana, who evidently also answered Udinese’s.
