Domenico Berardi has scored 12 goals in 17 matches in Serie A this season.
Having played all across the front three, that is an outstanding return for a player who is not an out-and-out centre-forward.
With a reduced amount of playing time, which will mean it will be tougher to build consistency, we can probably expect his return to fall, despite playing for a side that will certainly have a greater amount of possession and a larger amount of chances created.
Juve's current back-ups in attack are Sebastian Giovinco, who has just one goal in 10 appearances, Fabio Quagliarella, who has one goal in 14 appearances, and Mirko Vucinic, who has two goals in nine appearances.
With the knowledge that Berardi can blossom into a starter for the club, I would expect Conte to use the player with more care than he has done with the strikers mentioned above.
We could look at Giovinco and Quagliarella's numbers from last season—ignoring Vucinic, who was a guaranteed starter before Llorente and Tevez arrived.
Quagliarella played 27 times and scored nine times, while Giovinco played 31 times and scored seven times.
With this in mind, a return of at least seven goals could be expected, but with his versatility to play out wide and start in big games when Conte decides to utilise this system, I sense he can comfortably notch 10 goals in his debut season.
When you consider Juve will have Tevez, Llorente and probably Osvaldo chipping in with a larger amount of goals, the Bianconeri attack should be much more potent.
