Genoa Interested in Out-of-Favor Napoli Midfielder

Genoa are trying to shop from the big teams and, on top of Leonardo Bonucci, have Diego Demme in their crosshairs. Similarly to the Juventus stalwart, the midfielder has been excluded from the technical plans for this season, although less blatantly.

According to the newspaper Il Secolo XIX, the Rossoblù have started to concretely track the Azzurri deputy. He has long been tipped to move Hertha Berlin. However, the transfer seems to have fallen through for good at this stage.

Despite being healthy, Demme wasn’t part of the matchday squad in the first two rounds, fueling the buzz about his departure, with Genoa and other sides keeping tabs. After the Gabri Veiga fiasco, Napoli intend to add another man in that role, even though they’ll use part of the cash for Jasper Lindstrom, Tuttomercatoweb informs.

The 31-year-old joined Napoli in a €10M move from RB Leipzig in January 2020. He got consistent minutes in his first season at the club. However, Stanislav Lobotka completely outshined him afterward.

Our Take on Genoa and Demme

It’d be a decent addition, even though they already have two similar contributors in his role in Milan Badelj and Kevin Strootman. With Lindstrom, Partenopei would be set despite being one man down. They’ll be able to turn to 4-2-3-1 more frequently very easily.
