Napoli Announce Spinazzola, Say Di Lorenzo Won’t Leave

As widely anticipated, Napoli have put Leonardo Spinazzola under contract following his Roma exit on a free transfer. They didn’t stop there, though. They stated that Giovanni Di Lorenzo would stay, supposedly ending the saga.

“Calcio Napoli read in some newspapers that a clarification between Napoli and Di Lorenzo is still needed. Evidently, they are misinformed, as it already happened positively a few weeks back. He is and will be our captain and a linchpin for many more years.”

On top of Spinazzola, Rafa Marin also took the medicals in recent days. His official arrival in a convoluted deal with Real Madrid is imminent. Instead, Alessandro Buongiorno will undergo the physical tests later this week.

The Partenopei might not be done making moves on the wings. What they do next hinges on the result of their Mario Hermoso chase, where Antonio Conte decides to utilize Mathias Olivera, who’s been playing as a ‘braccetto’ for Uruguay, and the future of Mario Rui, who’s been put on sale.

According to Tuttomercatoweb, the Azzurri are among the sides keeping tabs on Filip Kostic, who could leave Juventus for €10M.

Our Take on Napoli, Spinazzola, and Di Lorenzo

We’ll see whether the latter’s agent will be content or if they jumped the gun. It wouldn’t be the first time. His permanence shouldn’t stop them from adding a more dynamic wingback to have the same depth and flexibility as on the other flank.
