Nicolo Fagioli was a bit of a revelation in the midfield last season.
Being called upon after injuries took hold in the middle of the pitch, Fagioli stepped in well and proved that he is more than capable of giving Allegri top-quality minutes. Fagioli is a strong midfield presence with good vision and the flexibility to play all over the midfield. He is certainly not a player who should be darting up the sidelines. But, he is more than capable of playing as a distributing playmaker around more attacking and defensive-minded mids.
In terms of expectations, it’s safe to say that Juve fans and the coaching staff would love to see him take another positive step in terms of his growth.
Fabio Miretti is another young and promising midfielder for Juve. At 20 years old, he represents the future of the position for the club. However, the future might actually be in the future and there is still a possibility that Juve loans him out this year.
It seems like Miretti may still be a year away from actively participating in the first team. Yet, he should still get quality minutes on another team so he can be ready when his time comes for Juventus.
