This set needs a complete update! He should have the nickname "Ghito". The website Transfermarkt even considers it as main name but I'd go for Santiago Vernazza as main and "Ghito" as nickname. Having scored 51 goals in 115 matches, he's one of the most beloved strikers in Palermo's history.
He was a prolific scorer, always right-footed, gifted with a very powerful shot — due to which he was nicknamef "Comefierro" in Argentina and Aldo "the one who broke through the goal" in Italy — and sense of position. About his shot power: during a match against Parma in 1958 he shoot so powerfully that the ball came in from the outside, creating a hole in the net and, despite Vernazza telling that the goal wasn't valid, the referee considered it good.
His main position was right-winger. In fact in the 1959-60 season, for example, he played 15 times as right-winger, 11 times as right-inside and only 7 as centre forward (in which he never scored).
Regarding his scoring ability: he was incredible from the middle distance and when shooting to the bottom corner as soon as he entered inside the box; his main characteristic was the stop with the leg followed by a volley; one of his most famous goals was a free kick he scored against Alessandria: a shot from 40 metres straight to the goal; while one his most famous exploits was a hat-trick against Como in six minutes that led Palermo to win the match.
He was also a good assist-man, especially from free kick. His long passes were also effective when they triggered a counterattack, which means that he probably wasn't stuck forward.
He probably wasn't a very good header considering his lack of goals with the head, for example, in his last season at Palermo. Instead his teammates used to hit with the head the balls coming from Vernazza's free kicks.
Apparently his performances got worse in the last half hour since he had difficulty at scoring, making sprints and his shot power decreased. He had troubles when he was marked tight, showing his likely not excellent speed, but he still could somehow break through the defence.
Therefore my suggestions are: Position *WF, SS, CF; Side RF/RS; DEF 42; BAL 83; STA 80; TS 79; ACC 83; DS 79; SPA 74; LPA 78; SA 83; SP 95; ST 85; CUR 73; HEA 76; JUM 77; TEC 83; MEN 75; TW 78; WFA and WFF 4.

Why DEF & BB should be increased?

I may had got this wrong but doesn't balance make a player strong in physical duels and defence make him used to move back from the attacking position? Considering the description he was a player who broke through the defences so I thought he could've been a strong player, hard to stop, but maybe it referred to runs through the defence. While regarding the defence, he sometimes sent long balls from the back, meaning that maybe he sometimes moved to the midfield. Anyway, I guess those values might stay as they are.

He has Reaction for this "runs through the defense"

And he might had possessed some kind of offensive freedom in order to drop back and launch pinpointesque passes, this doesn't no necessarily means that he should have better defense, some forwards wouldn't spent a lot of time alongside of the defenders to be constantly marked.
