Napoli had set up the arrival of Nehuen Perez from Udinese, but they might now stand pat as a result of a late U-turn about the Argentine and Leo Ostigard, who was previously expected to depart. The Norwegian fared well against Lazio and is more likely to stay put.
According to Tuttomercatoweb, the Partenopei have now more reservations about bringing in a new center-back. They’d have to exclude one player from their lists. They haven’t found the right taker for their own defender. He has been pursued by Udinese, Genoa, and Torino.
Napoli fully plan to hire a new coach at the end of the season, who could opt for a different tactic, and they might invest in more prestigious names than Perez. In addition, they have already invested a lot in January, although a few acquisitions were on loan with options to buy.
The Azzurri believe to have enough men to play with a three-man line. Natan will return relatively soon and Giovanni Di Lorenzo and Leander Dendoncker can adapt to the role. They aren’t planning any more major moves. there could be a pair of exits around the fringes such as Gianluca Gaetano and Diego Demme.
Our Take on Napoli and Nehuen Perez
Ideally, they’d sign him and keep Ostigard, but they decided to stack up on attackers first, which was a little short-sighted. They won’t all get consistent game-time if they don’t go back to 4-3-3.
