Paratici wanted him 3 years ago and offered 3m to Empoli. That was Empoli's whole Primavera budget but their President said they didn't need the money so kept him.

Fabrizio Corsi[Empoli President] on Top Calcio right now.
Well he started the season at 18 years old, so I don't know how much better he could have done. It seems this is a little more intriguing than our usual young player purchase where we just use them as counter weights in other deals.
We'll see where he goes from here but he has a lot of impressive physical aspects and, like I said, he had about as good of a season as you will find at that age.
