Luca Del Papa (born 7 February 1994) is an Italian footballer who plays as a forward.


Born in Montesilvano, in the Province of Pescara, Abruzzo region, Del Papa started his career at Delfino Pescara 1936.[1] On 5 August 2010 he was signed by Juventus in a co-ownership deal worth €300,000 over a 3-year contract,[2] as part of the deal that transferred Riccardo Maniero to Pescara for €450,000.[2] Del Papa was a member of Juve's U17 team during the 2010–11 season,[3] as well as its reserve team during the 2011–12 season. However, he only played once for the latter due to injury.[4] At age 18 he signed a new 3-year contract with Juventus. Circa January 2013 Del Papa left for the Hungarian club Budapest Honvéd FC (re-joining Juve team-mate Raffaele Alcibiade); however, he was only able to play for their second team. On 19 June 2013 Del Papa was acquired by Juventus outright, with Maniero moved to Abruzzo in the same formula.[5]

On 28 August 2013 Del Papa and Alberto Gallinetta were signed by Lega Pro Seconda Divisione club Chieti from Juventus.[6] Del Papa failed to play any game for the first team of the relegated side.
