Slovenia striker Beric set for Udinese

Udinese have reportedly won the race to sign Slovenian striker Robert Beric, beating a host of other Serie A clubs to his signature. At just 19-years-old, Beric was a highly sought-after player and always seemed certain to move to Italy.
He only joined Maribor, a top Slovenian team, last summer but just a few months later seems set to join Udinese. Beric was briefly team-mates with Josip Ilicic, who joined Palermo in the summer and has greatly impressed ever since.
As a result, interest in Beric has been accelerated with the hopes he can have the same impact as his fellow Slovenian. Udinese are likely to sell striker Antonio Floro Flores in the January transfer market so Beric’s apparent arrival is a welcome boost to their squad.
The teenager has allegedly cost €1.5 million, and it thought that Slovenia’s proximity to the city of Udine was a vital factor that resulted in Beric turning down the likes of Palermo and Chievo, who were also interested.
Beric should be thrust straight into the first-team fold and will be charged with relieving some of the goalscoring burden from Antonio Di Natale. Welcome Bonus Offer Betway
