Luca to Ajax, little space and clear thoughts: “I want to stay”

Luca to Ajax, little space and clear thoughts: “I want to stay”

Little used in his first season with Lanserri, the Italian striker wants to stay in Amsterdam: “My future is not in Italy.”

Among the young Italian prospects our football has unleashed over the past few years is a striker who has chosen the show as the perfect stage to establish himself at a high level.

from b series inAirDevice. An important leap from the academy to one of the most attractive leagues for those talented entering European football.

In this case no reference to Lorenzo Luca It is purely required. Indeed, the 2000-born striker left Pisa last summer to don the Ajax shirt. The transfer was achieved on the basis of a loan with an option to buy in the amount of 10 million euros.

An important investment for a boy who – until now – never had the chance to try his hand at Serie A. Lucca could be framed as a risky move, yes, but at the same time interesting, given Lancieri’s remarkable flair for shaping youth.

But how is Luka’s performance at Ajax? In his first season in Amsterdam, the Moncalieri forward bounces between the first team and Jong Ajax, the second most successful club formation in the Netherlands.

12 appearances and 5 goals, accompanied by somewhat limited employment with the first team coached by John Heitinga. Luca He never started with the honorary ranks of the Eredivisie He made his debut on August 18 against Groningen. Collecting only 110′ overall distributed in just 11 appearances.

Decidedly less playing time but that didn’t stop him from finding the first joys in his new jersey: Luca, in fact, He also opened himself up to the first team shirt by scoring two goals in the space of three days against PSV and Vitesse between 6 and 9 November.. Always and anyway as an alternative.

A few good flashes to spice up an experienced season as a supporting actor – as evidenced by the just 17 minutes played in his last ten matches – but it hasn’t dented his desire to prove himself in the Dutch capital. Luca’s intentions from a future point of view are, in fact, quite clear:

“I feel very comfortable here in Amsterdam. The city is very beautiful and I just have to think about calming down and helping my teammates when the coach doubts me. I would like to be compensated by Ajax to stay here and score goals. My future is not in Italy.he told “Mola TV”.

There is no desire, at the moment, to measure himself against Serie A, while at the prospect of a call-up in Azzurro, the striker preferred to cover up:

“You don’t have to ask me this, but who is responsible.”

A future not yet written, therefore, for the former Palermo, Turin and Brescia, who has already made a choice in his heart: to become great with Ajax.
