A surprise shot. Completely escaped the market radar. Nemanja Radonjic became a Torino player on 7 July 2022. Deal concluded aimed at strengthening the field trocar: Radonjic arrived fromOlympique Marseille, the club that in 2018 had bought it for the sum of 12 million euros. However, he spent the 2021/2022 season away from Provence: al Benfica, where it certainly did not shine. Only 6 league appearances, without any stamp to embellish his Lusitanian experience.

With Torino, after the friendlies, he made his debut in an official match on 6 August 2022 in Turin-Palermo 3-0. The Serbian was the best in the field and also scored the goal of the momentary 2-0, after the Var had canceled one for him.

Radonjic, the career: spent in Rome and Empoli

Nemanja Radonjic is a winger of Serbian nationality born in 1996. He grew up in Partizan and in the Hagi Academy, on the intuition of Walter Sabatini in 2014 he arrived at Rome for about 4 million euros. For him only some presence at the Viareggio Tournament in the Giallorossi, before being shot on loan to theEmpoli by Maurizio Sarri. In Tuscany he does not even touch the field. Then he moves on to Cucaricki, a club of the Serbian top division, where he manages to play with greater continuity. In 2017 the Red Star of Belgrade. He only stays for one season and in the preseason the next.

Here he begins to get serious with 47 appearances and 11 goals in the Europa League, Champions League preliminaries, Serie A and Serbian Cup. So much so that he got the call-up for the 2018 World Cup in Russia (35 appearances and 5 goals overall with the Serbian selection). In that same summer he arrived in Ligue 1. In the first season he did not find much space, while the following year he played 21 league matches and closed with a haul of 5 goals. In the 20-21 vintage he divides himself between Marseille and Berlin, where since January he has worn the jersey ofHerta: 12 appearances and a goal before heading back to France and leaving for Lisbon. Now a difficult task awaits him, namely that of replacing Josip Brekalo.

The technical characteristics

He is the player identified to replace the current Wolsfburg player. Certainly not a walk in the park for a guy who has basically been out for a whole season. The characteristics are however the ones closest to Croatian. He too prefers to play on the left-handed side, but with inverted foot. Good basic technique, in his main qualities there is dribbling and the tendency to concentrate to kick with the right. In his career, in addition to the winger, he also played the role of winger on both sides, without noteworthy results.
