Reports have emerged claiming that promoted Carpi are set to sign Arsenal youngster Renny Smith.
The 18 year-old midfielder has been trialling with the Serie A new-boys this week.
“Renny loves the Italian style of football, knows the history of Serie A and is fascinated by it,” agent Jordan Wise told Calcionews24.
“I think Italy is the ideal place for his style, as he is a really intelligent player. He has already represented Austria at Under-18 and Under-19 level, so he has experience and character.
“There are several clubs interested in him, but he has always had a passion for Italy, its football and its style. He is ready for this challenge.
“The other clubs tracking Renny are Fulham, Bournemouth, Crystal Palace, Aston Villa and more.”
