GianlucaDiMarzio.com reports that Championship side Sheffield Wednesday are plotting a move for Italian midfielder Andrea Mazzarani. The 26-year-old impressed for Modena last season, although they were relegated from the Italian Serie B division.
Mazzarani played 14 times last season as he was integrated into the first-team structure, scoring three goals. Carlos Carvalhal believes that he would be a worthy asset to his Owls squad for next season.
Sheff Wed are looking to bolster their squad ahead of next season as they aim to go one better than the Play-Off Final. They suffered Wembley defeat to Hull City in May, and Carvalhal wants them to reach the top flight. Steven Fletcher has already signed a four-year contract after his release from Sunderland.
Owner Dejphon Chansiri is now putting his wealth behind the club in terms of player recruitment. Former Udinese man Mazzarani is someone Sheff Wed believe will be a worthy asset. It remains to be seen if they will make their move, but they continue to monitor the situation.
He has spent the last three years at Modena and the attacking midfielder would surely relish the chance to play in England. He is also capable of playing all across the frontline, centrally or out wide. His versatility makes him an even more attractive proposition for on-looking suitors.
