Italy coach Roberto Mancini is considering an alternative system that would see Ciro Immobile left out for Moise Kean.
As reported by Italian newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport (via LazioNews24) earlier today, the 31-year-old Italian striker is still struggling to show his best with the Azzurri, having failed to impress in the 1-1 draw against Bulgaria earlier this week.
Immobile will have another chance tonight in the 2022 World Cup qualifier against Switzerland, but Mancini is already studying an alternative system that does not include the former Torino man.
The Italy coach is creating a ‘Plan B’ that would see returning Juventus forward Moise Kean in the squad, with his tactical versatility and ability to play wide proving important. This would allow Mancini to move Lorenzo Insigne into the centre of the front three in a false nine role.
