Samuel Di Carmine (born 29 September 1988) is an Italian professional footballer who plays as a striker for Serie A club Hellas Verona.

Career

Di Carmine, a powerful striker, made his Serie A debut on 25 October 2006 away to Torino in a 1–0 win.[1] He scored his first goal with the viola in a 2007–08 UEFA Cup match, the final goal in a clear 6–1 win to IF Elfsborg on 8 November 2007.[2]

On 1 July 2008, Championship side Queens Park Rangers, owned by Italian Formula One mogul and businessman Flavio Briatore, signed Di Carmine on loan for the 2008–09 season.[3]

On 28 October 2008, Di Carmine scored his first league goal for Queens Park Rangers, scoring in the 54th minute against Birmingham.

On 19 August 2009, he was loaned to Serie B club Gallipoli.[4] Two days later, he played his first game for the club, substitute William Pianu in the second half. The match ended in a 1–1 draw with Ascoli.

Di Carmine was signed by Serie B club Frosinone in co-ownership deal for a peppercorn fee of €500.[5]

On 7 July 2011, Di Carmine joined Cittadella.[6] Cittadella bought 50% registration rights from relegated Frosinone. He was expected to replace Federico Piovaccari as team topscorer. Eventually Nunzio Di Roberto was the topscorer with 10 goals,[7] and Di Carmine 1 goal short with 9 goals.[8]

In the summer of 2013, he moved to S.S. Juve Stabia. Despite the club relegated from Serie B, he remained with the club.[9]

Di Carmine was loaned out to Hellas Verona from Perugia for the 2018–19 season. He helped the team clinch promotion to Serie A with his 11 league goals and Verona signed him on a permanent contract ahead of the 2019–20 season.[10]

On 28 January 2021, Di Carmine joined Crotone on loan until the end of the 2020–21 season.[11]
