It's officially been announced that Capello will join the Primavera on a 3 year contract from Bologna. In exchange, we've given half of both Bandini and Romano, and only time will tell how this deal will play out.
So I'm going to use something along the lines of Browha's format to give an introduction to the player.
Name: Alessandro Capello
Date of Birth: 12/12/95 (17 years old)
Place of Birth: Bologna, Italy
Height: 180 cm
Weight: 74 kg
Position: CF/CAM (deep playing forward)
A bit like: Roberto Mancini (though in Allievi, there were also comparisons with Mattia Destro and even Gianfranco Zola)
The players in last season's squad that he's most similar to are Colombi and Garritano.

Capello's already had his debut with the Bologna first team this year in a Coppa Italia match against Livorno, and he has caps for the Italy u-16, u-17, and u-18 NT. He's already turned down a move to Chelsea, and was reportedly on the receiving end of offers from Juventus and Borussia Dortmund, so it's worth noting that big clubs with strong scouting programs have been interested in him.
Though he clearly has a keen eye for goal, Capello has been more of a trequarista this year, occasionally sporting the number 10 shirt in the Primavera. He was suggested to Inter by the current Italy u-18 NT coach, Alberigo Evani. He absolutely excelled in the Allievi category two years ago, and did pretty well last year considering he's two years younger than most players in the Primavera. He has a very cultured range of passing and decent off-the-ball movement. He has very good technical skills, and some tackling ability (having taken the ball from a defender of the opposition on more than one occasion). One negative thing that I'd say about him is that recently he's been showing a lack of composure in the penalty area, but I think that won't be such a serious problem for him next year. Generally he looks like a great acquisition though.
