There’s a new Serbian talent in Serie A: it’s Nikola Ninkovic, a 22-year-old midfielder.
It was not supposed to be this way. Napoli were expected to sign Ninkovic from Partizan Belgrade and then loan him to Chievo. However, Genoa end up the winners to acquire his rights and will also loan him to Chievo regardless. It looks like a limitation of the amount of non-Europeans on the roster may have been the cause. We are awaiting official details on this.
During this season, Ninkovic gradually gained a starting team position, scoring 3 goals in 14 league games.
