Caribbean starlet Zaine Pierre looks set for a move to Spain or Italy, rather than England, understands.

The 17-year-old midfielder has already spent time on trial at Arsenal, Liverpool, Tottenham, Manchester City and Stoke in the last 12 months.

But despite interest in landing him on a permanent deal, work permit regulations mean the St Lucia international is currently unable to play in England.

He is now looking likely to move to mainland Europe, with the likes of Genoa, Roma, Atletico Madrid and Villarreal all keen.

Genoa appear to be currently heading the chase for the W-Connection ace as he is set to link-up with them on loan.

"He has the experience of being on trial with some of the top clubs in England while he was still 16 years old so that will serve him in good stead," W-Connection chairman John Williams told the Trinidad Guardian.

"Pierre may still be a teenager but I'm confident that he will give a good account of himself knowing that he has a chance to play for one of the top clubs in Italian football."
