Fabio Quagliarella is an Italian footballer who plays as a striker for Serie A club Juventus. Quagliarella began his career at Torino, where he grew up in their youth sector. He made his Serie A debut for Torino against Piacenza on 14 May 2000. In 2002 and 2003, he was sent on loan to lower division clubs Florentia Viola, at that time in Serie C2, and then Chieti. Quagliarella signed with the newly promoted Ascoli as part of a co-ownership deal with Udinese in summer 2005. Quagliarella stayed at Ascoli for just one season, scoring just 3 times in 33 Serie A appearances. On 7 July 2006, Udinese sold co-ownership of Quagliarella to Sampdoria in exchange for the transfer of Salvatore Foti. During the 2006–2007 season with the blucerchiati, Quagliarella scored 13 goals in league play and earned attention worldwide due to the spectacular nature of many of his goals. On 1 June 2009, Quagliarella moved to his hometown club Napoli for a transfer fee of €18 million, where he signed a 5 year deal. He managed to score 11 goals in Serie A to help Napoli qualify for the 2010–11 UEFA Europa League with a 6th place finish in the league. On 27 August 2010, Quagliarella signed for Juventus on loan for a fee of €4.5 million with the Bianconeri having the option to sign him permanently for €10.5m, paid over three years. On 22 June 2011 Quagliarella signed a 3 year deal to stay with Juventus for €10.5 million which will keep him until 2014. On 10 November 2012 Quagliarella scored his first hat-trick against Delfino Pescara 1936 in a match that Juventus won 6 - 1. Following his impressive performances with Sampdoria in 2006–07, Quagliarella was called up to the Azzurri squad for a friendly against Romania in February. He was included in the Italian Euro 2008 squad and the Italian 2010 World Cup squad. He is known for scoring incredible goals from unconventional angles that often catch the goalkeeper by surprise.
