Agent Alessandro Alberti pushes Botafogo goalkeeper Jefferson towards Italy
Agent Alessandro Alberti has pushed Botafogo goalkeeper Jefferson towards a switch to Italy.
The Brazil international has been considered one of the best stoppers in the Brasileirão for a number of years and Alberti believes he could be a success in Serie A.
“He is an animal in his physicality, like Nelson Dida,” he told Tuttomercatoweb.
“Jefferson may be 31, but he can certainly play in Italy. He has an international profile. For example, if Juventus were looking for an understudy to Gigi Buffon, he’d be perfect.
“He could play at Sassuolo, seeing as they are looking for a goalkeeper. Or Palermo if Stefano Sorrentino leaves.”
