Serie A Players To Watch

Cristiano Ronaldo may have stolen all the headlines in Serie A this year, and Juventus are expected to once again clean up domestically, however there are lots of other players on other teams looking to differentiate themselves this season. We take a look at some of them in this Players To Watch piece.

LEONARDO BONUCCI
(Juventus)
In the spotlight for a second successive summer after returning to Juventus in a deal that saw Argentinian striker Gonzalo Higuain join Milan on loan.

SERGEJ MILINKOVIC-SAVIC
(Lazio)
Arguably one of the best attacking midfielders in Serie A last time out, he chipped in with 14 goals and will be expected to deliver more of the same this season.

SIMONE VERDI
(Napoli)
Scored 10 goals for Bologna last season. Bought by Napoli for €25m, the four-times capped 26-year-old could yet become a key figure in Roberto Mancini’s new Italy.

PATRICK CUTRONE

NICOLO BARELLA
(Cagliari)
The under-21 international was the brightest light in a side that came close to relegation last season. Already called up to the senior Italy squad, he is a very useful midfielder.

DANIELE BASELLI

JOAO CANCELO
