Fabio Quagliarella could win his first international cap since 2010 after beating Mario Balotelli to a place in Italy's squad for its opening Euro 2020 qualifiers.
Sampdoria forward Quagliarella is the top scorer in Serie A, having already netted 20 goals in the most prolific season of his career.
Roberto Mancini handed the 36-year-old a recall for a training camp in February and he is now in line to face Finland and Liechtenstein as the Azzurri commence their Group J campaign.
Marseille striker Balotelli is still absent, though, despite scoring five times in his last seven Ligue 1 games, with uncapped Cagliari attacker Leonardo Pavoletti, Juventus teenager Moise Kean and Lazio centre-forward Ciro Immobile preferred.
There are six Juve players selected among the 29-man group, including five-cap full-back Leonardo Spinazzola, who impressed on his Champions League debut against Atletico Madrid on Tuesday.
Along with Pavoletti, talented Roma youngster Nicolo Zaniolo is one of five players in contention for a maiden international appearance.
