Lazio and Napoli Interested in Torino Touted Midfielder

Lazio and Napoli are both keeping tabs on Samuele Ricci, but it’d take a large offer to convince Torino to sell. The Granata plan to hold on to their best players. They convinced Milan Juric to stay in their dugout for another campaign thanks to such a promise.

Per Il Mattino, the Partenopei are seeking a midfielder that could be utilized both in 4-3-3 and 4-2-3-1. The youngster fits the bill. He’d be able to deputize Stanislav Lobotka and their box-to-box.

Instead, Lazio want a maestro that could alternate with Danilo Cataldi and could potentially give Ricci a larger role compared to Napoli, La Stampa informs. The Biancocelesti are also keen on Antonio Sanabria in their never-ending search for a backup striker, Sky relays.

Per Calciomercato, the capital side will have a meeting with the agent of the player in the next few days. The Granata paid €8.5M to sign him from Empoli.

Our Take on Napoli, Lazio, and Ricci

His versatility is an asset and he can still be molded, even though he will never be an Andrea Pirlo-esque deep-lying playmaker. While almost nobody is truly untouchable these days, the suitors would have to open up their wallets to get him. His departure would be surprising.
