Luca Antei (born 19 April 1992) is an Italian footballer who plays as a defender for Benevento, on loan from Sassuolo.

Club career[edit]

Roma[edit]

He began his career with Serie A club Roma. Ahead of the 2011–12 season, Antei was training with the club's first-team and he was praised by Walter Sabatini, Roma's director of football, who said he was "growing exponentially" as a player.[3] Serie B side Grosseto announced that they had signed Antei on loan at the end of the transfer window in August 2011.[4][5][6] The club also had an option to sign him outright. Having won the Campionato Nazionale Primavera the previous season,[7] the club allowed him to leave temporarily to gain experience.[8] He made his debut for Grosseto on 1 October in a 3–3 draw with Ascoli, replacing Samuele Olivi as a substitute.[9] On 1 June 2012 he had an operation on his knee (anterior cruciate ligament).[10] In June 2012 Roma paid Grosseto €100,000 as counter-option.[11]

Sassuolo[edit]

In January 2013 Antei was signed by U.S. Sassuolo Calcio, initially in a temporary deal, with an option to sign 50% registration rights. On 1 July 2013 Sassuolo signed Antei in a co-ownership deal for €500,000.[12] The last 50% registration rights of Antei was purchased on 25 June 2015.[13] for another €500,000.[14]

Benevento[edit]

On 31 August 2017, Antei joined Benevento Calcio on a season-long loan deal with obligation to buy.[15]

International career[edit]

He received his first call-up to the Italy under-21 team, managed by Ciro Ferrara, in August 2011 for the 2013 UEFA European Under-21 Football Championship qualifier against Hungary in September.[16] He made his debut the following month in a 7–2 win against Liechtenstein on 6 October.[17]
