Napoli Attached to a Pair of Serie A Forwards as Well

Napoli will be one of the most active sides in Serie A, as openly declared by president Aurelio De Laurentiis. The acquisition of Pasquale Mazzocchi will be announced soon. Instead, the Lazar Samardzic deal needs more work both with the player’s camp and Udinese, DAZN informed.

The Partenopei remain confident and have no plan of stopping there. They want another midfielder and have asked for Feyenoord’s Mats Wieffer on loan, Il Mattino informs. They continue to dream of Teun Koopmeiners, but Atalanta should resist in January.

On top of tracking Radu Dragusin, Napoli have shortlisted a pair of strikers. They reached out to Cagliari to inquire about Zito Luvumbo, whose price tag is €18M. The channel of communication with Salernitana is open, and the Granata wouldn’t mind selling Boulaye Dia.

The Partenopei see him more as a summer target, and their interest is only tepid at this stage. He has a €22M release clause, but his side could settle for less.

Our Take on the Napoli Moves

It would have been nice if the negotiation for Samardzic didn’t present any hurdles, but they should definitely keep at it and meet the requests, which probably aren’t unreasonable. Another midfielder would help, as their depth is lacking besides Frank Anguissa being away for AFCON.

It’s interesting that they are mulling adding to their frontline. Even though Dia and Luvumbo are different and compatible with their strikers, there might be something to the rumors about Matteo Politano and especially Giovanni Simeone.
