Alessandro Buongiorno’s Move to Napoli Thrown into Further Doubt

Torino sporting director Davide Vagnati has thrown Alessandro Buongiorno’s heavily anticipated move to Napoli into doubt. Amid talks Inter are trying to hijack Partenopei’s effort to sign the Italy international, Vagnati poured more gasoline on fire while chatting with reporters.

For Buongiorno, these are delicate moments,” the Torino executive said, as quoted by FCInterNews. “We’re talking about a lad who grew up with us, an exceptional person and a great player. We are evaluating carefully with him what would be the best option.

Are Inter tracking him? You probably need to ask Piero Ausilio,” Vagnati joked as he poured more cold water on Napoli. Adding to Antonio Conte’s list of concerns, Buongiorno’s agent, Beppe Riso, met with the Giuseppe Meazza hierarchy earlier this week to discuss a potential deal.

Napoli are desperate to onboard the 25-year-old as Conte sees him as an upgrade on his current defensive options. They’ve already agreed on a transfer fee with Torino president Urbano Cairo, committing a substantial €40 million to convince the Granata bigwig to sanction the move.

However, the homegrown Torino star is seemingly having second thoughts. While he’d have a guaranteed starting berth at Napoli, Inter’s call looks irresistible for the highly-rated defender.

Caught in two minds, Buongiorno must make up his mind, considering patience isn’t among Aurelio De Laurentiis’ standout features. Known for his flamboyant nature, the Napoli president will unlikely beg for mercy.

Inter’s interference has caused problems for Napoli, and it wouldn’t be a surprise if De Laurentiis walked away from the highly-rated Italian.
