The Croatian striker knows the Italian league very well. His past experiences with Fiorentina and Milan confirm his quality.
There are different kinds of strikers in football and Nikola Kalinic can definitely be included in the group of those that are very reliable and talented.
His moves on the pitch are those of the best performers in that role and Paulo Fonseca should play him on Sunday in the important Serie A clash Sampdoria-Roma.
In the 2015-16 Serie A season, Kalinic made 36 appearances with Fiorentina and scored 12 goals playing an average of 71 minutes per game.
The following year he improved even more. The Croatian striker played 33 matches and scored 15 goals (76 minutes per game).
When he moved to AC Milan in 2017, he made 31 appearances and scored only 6 goals (58 minutes per game).
33 Serie A goals in his previous three Serie A campaigns, a good performance for the talented Croatian striker.
Kalinic can definitely lead Roma‘s offensive operations on Sunday. It’s going to be a tough challenge against Sampdoria but he has the necessary experience and talent to make the difference.
