Italy coach Roberto Mancini is delighted with the impact of Tigre striker Mateo Retegui.
Retegui struck in their Euro qualifying win against Malta - his second in two games.
“Retegui knows how to put the ball in the net and that is not nothing," said Mancini in his press conference.
“That is what we saw when we were scouting him. He still needs time, he must get to know European football, but he knows how to score and that is an important quality.
“He tried, that is already good. Having Retegui in Serie A would make him stronger, help him learn the language and consequently dialogue better with his teammates on the field."
Mancini was also asked about selecting more 'Oriundi' – those who are born and raised abroad with their ancestors hailing from Italy.
“Yes, it is a possibility. We have a minimal percentage of Italians who play regularly in Serie A. If you look at other countries, they all do it. Switzerland have 15 out of 20 players who are Oriundi. So do Belgium. France, Germany and England all look to Oriundi.
“Until a few years ago, we had many strong players and didn't need to do it. The others did, often taking players that we had helped to develop and mature, so now we will adapt and do the same."
