Livorno forward Paulinho "deserves a big club" insists agent Eugenio Ascari
Eugenio Ascari, the agent of Livorno forward Paulinho, insists his client deserves a move to a big club.
The 28 year-old has netted 12 goals in 30 matches for the Amaranto this season, including a wonderful strike in Monday’s 2-2 draw with Internazionale.
Ascari believes Paulinho has proven he can score at all levels of Italian football and is now ready to step up, after spending almost nine years with Livorno.
“Paulinho’s campaign is there for all to see, so I don’t even need to comment on it,” he told tuttomercatoweb.
“They are always decisive goals too and he is dragging the team forward. He proved that he didn’t suffer by stepping up from Serie B. He has been climbing the divisions for five years now.
“At Sorrento he scored 40 goals in two years, while in Serie B he did very well and this season he seems to be achieving full maturity.
“It is normal and logical that a player like him deserves a big club.
“Even within Livorno everyone is realising what quality he has. Have any offers arrived? It’s premature to discuss this, we’ll see what the situation is in June.”
