De Laurentiis Considers Going Scorched Earth on Napoli

Napoli owner Aurelio De Laurentiis was appalled by yet another very lackluster performance by his team versus Empoli. He’s planning big changes in the coming window. While he has whittled down the list of candidates for the bench, no player is truly certain to stay put, La Gazzetta dello Sport relayed (via OneFootball).

The patron no longer wants to convince anybody to stay. He did in the past campaign with Victor Osimhen. The negotiation to renew his contract was never-ending. The extension simply postponed his exit.

De Laurentiis wants to have a happier locker room and a tighter group, which the three Napoli coaches didn’t manage to build this campaign. The president has struggled to solve the various individual cases without Cristiano Giuntoli and Luciano Spalletti.

As a result, he’ll evaluate any proper offer, even for the linchpins of the squad. Those who want out are invited to bring bids. The overhaul could involve cornerstones like Giovanni Di Lorenzo, Khvicha Kvaratsheklia, Stanislav Lobotka, Frank Aguissa, and Matteo Politano, should the suitors meet the club’s demand.

Our Take on Napoli and De Laurentiis

While it’s an understandable posture after a terrible season, there’s no need to get crazy. A quality coach and directors will get them back on track. They’ll have more than enough to do on the transfer market to simply fix and shore up their squad even keeping all the centerpieces. Plus, their price tags are notoriously lofty.
