Cyriel Dessers named amongst 2022/23 Serie A flops

Cyriel Dessers has endured a frustrating start to life at Cremonese

Super Eagles striker Cyriel Dessers has been named amongst high-profile new players to have had an underwhelming start to the 2022/23 Italian Serie A season so far.

After seven (7) rounds of matches in the Serie A so far, Dessers is yet to find the back of the net for his new club Cremonese with the club in the relegation places.

The Nigerian international moved to Cremonese on a five-year deal on a permanent basis from Belgian side KRC Genk at the beginning of the season after impressing for both Genk and Dutch Eredivisie side Feyenoord.

Dessers teamed up with fellow Nigerian striker David Okereke who also joined Cremonese this season, but the former Genk striker has found life more difficult with Okereke already opening his goal account.

In rankings done by Italian news outlet Tutto Sport, Dessers was listed amongst the new signings who have flopped so far in a list that also featured other high-profile players like Nemanja Matic, Luka Jovic, and Samuel Umtiti.

The Italian outlet listed eleven (11) new signings in the Serie A this season who have flopped so far. They are:

  • Felix Afena-Gyan - Cremonese
  • Cyriel Dessers - Cremonese
  • Mattia Destro - Empoli
  • Nemanja Matic - Roma
  • Luiz Maximiano - Lazio
  • Luka Jovic - Fiorentina
  • Andrea Petagna - Monza
  • Andrea Pinamonti - Sassuolo
  • Samuel Umtiti - Lecce
  • Harry Winks - Sampdoria
  • Joshua Zirkzee - Bologna

Tutto Sport also listed 11 new signings they have adjudged to be top signings in the Italian Serie A season so far. The players are:

  • Augustin Alvarez - Sassuolo
  • Santiago Ascacibar - Cremonese
  • Assan Ceesay - Lecce
  • Boulaye Dia - Salernitana
  • Paulo Dybala - Roma
  • Josh Doig - Hellas Verona
  • Rasmus Hojlund - Atalanta
  • Sandi Lovric - Udinese
  • Ivan Provedel - Lazio
  • Nicolo Robella - Monza
  • Khvicha Kvaratskhelia - Napoli

Cyriel Dessers will hope to break his goal-scoring duck this weekend when his Cremonese side take on Lecce at the Via del Mare on Sunday, October 2.
