    When he was in the Primavera I thought he was almost certainly going to be a Serie A player, but didn't expect it with Juve.

    He's always been pretty versatile, same sort of positions as Zambrotta, and his technique is nice.

    i thought the same about d'elia, and now he's a regular for vicenza... spinazzola is a bigger talent, though.

    D'Elia was always average

    I can tell you the players who most impressed me from the Primavera in the past 7-8 years: Giovinco, F. Rossi, Pinsoglio, S. Esposito, Daud, Immobile, Marrone, Spinazzola, De Silvestro, Untersee, Schiavone, Beltrame, Lanini, Rugani, Romagna, Mattiello, Audero, Clemenza, Donis, Zappa, Lirola, Muratore, Cassata, Vitale, Kastanos, Favilli, Kean.

    What a mixed bag, but still a lot of top tier or top tier potential players there.

    he was, but before i realized that, he impressed me during some summer preparation matches and around that time we had left backs like traoré or molinaro, so i was desperately longing for a new talent for that position.

    nice list btw i'm pretty disappointed with the way rossi's, marrone's and daud's careers went. especially marrone had a lot more potential than to be a sub for a belgian club. i hope at least rugani and kean can go all along the marchisio way and become local heroes. too bad kean looks like a dumb little pogba wannabe.

    I have two and a half questions rooted in the following;

    Q1: Is he good enough to be a backup LB? Consider that Sandro gets injured and is out for three months (and assume we do not have Asamoah around). Can we lean on Spinazzola then, or do the backup LB need to be closer on par with Sandro (as Evra was)?

    Q2: He seems very versatile. Giaccherini and Padoin were versatile too, and always gave it all, although they obviously were not starting material they were useful through versatility. Is Spinazzola in terms of versatility potentially as useful as above two?

    Q2.5: If he is not as versatile or good as the likes of Padoin or Giaccherini, would he be worth hanging around? If you find it hard to compare, try comparing with e.g. Pessotto or Birindelli.

    Is he good enough defensively to play as real LB? At Atalanta he plays LWB right?

    I see him more as a winger in our current formation with the ability to play fullback in emergency situations.

    A1:
    Spinazzola is more than useful for us. You can compare him more with Alex Sandro than with Evra or Asabob. It's more a dynamic player with a beautiful technique. Call him Alex Sandro 'light'. Defensively and physical not as good as AS, but better technique and same style of play. As back-up I would say he is good to have.

    A2:
    He is versatile, can play on the left and right without problems. I don't think he can play in the center of the field, but that is not necessary with the players we have. He is offcourse more talented than Giacc and Padoin but less consistent than Padoin.

    A2.5:
    This does not need to be answered. I hope my info is useful.

    Summary:
    Good back-up: Yes
    Versatile: yes
    Better than Asamoah/Evra: Don't be overhyped, let's say estimate the same level.

    Question from my side, how is he vs Kolasinac?

    More than happy with those answers, thanks a lot!
    Regarding Kolasinac I will await others answers, barely seen both of them

    I don't know about his defense. With our Primavera he was more like a winger if I remember correctly. I'd still bring him back as a backup.

    Wow..
    Way to go Spinazzola.
    Finally we could fill those home grown quota without use a fodder like De Ceglie.

    No, but then he is a young and maybe could learn with experience. Originally he was an authentic winger.

    Yeah was a wing forward in Primavera. But he has matured enough he is trusted as wingback, and seems alright taking care of business further back then he was used to. Maybe just needs further schooling but I wouldn't be suprised if tried him out as fullback either, tho perhaps he isn't in the level to say no to Kolosinac for.

    Mattiello wasnt a fullback either iirc, but Allegri used him there in 14/15. He was much younger than Spinazzola is now tho

    I have watched him a few times and he has been excellent in each of him. His ball controlling and acceleration are great. It's quite hard to take the ball away from him. I would definitely love him to come here this summer.

    Spinazzola as a left back? I think this is a no go. At Juve he'd play as a winger in 4231 IMO, he's almost perfect for this.
