Crotone’s 23-year old center-back is turning heads and getting Serie A clubs talking after a number of fine performances this season.
When a club has a tremendous season that defies expectations, including finishing at or near the top of the table, eyes are suddenly on the players who have performed exceptionally well throughout the season. For Crotone, this is no exception. According to Alfredo Pedulla, 23-year old center-back Gian Marco Ferrari has been raising eyebrows with his string of solid performances at the back, helping Crotone achieve the lowest Goals Against tally in Serie B this season (32 goals). Pedulla reported that Juventus sent representatives to Modena on Friday to scout Ferrari as Crotone clinched promotion to Serie A following their 1-1 draw.
However, the Bianconeri are not the only club who have been monitoring the young Italian. Genoa are reportedly to be highly interested in his services also and should Ivan Juric be tempted to depart Calabria for a new adventure in Liguria on the Grifone bench, Ferrari could follow his current manager.
The 23 year-old has made 39 appearances this season, marshaling Crotone’s backline while collecting a goal and two assist in the process. He joined the Calabrian club on a free transfer from Parma last summer and signed a contract expiring at the end of June in 2018.
