Napoli Enter Race for Empoli Trequartista Baldanzi

Empoli playmaker Tommaso Baldanzi has gained unprecedented attention from top Italian clubs this season, with Milan in particular keen on securing his signature this summer. Having broken through to the first team, 20-year-old Baldanzi has appeared 26 times for the Azzurri this season, scoring 4 goals in this season.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport (via TuttoNapoli), Milan are on the forefront, but there this season’s runaway champions-elect Napoli have directed equal attention on the budding trequartista. Empoli owner and chairman Fabrizio Corsi reportedly maintains good relations with Partenopei chief Aurelio De Laurentiis.

A price tag of €15-20M is set upon by Empoli on Baldanzi, making him a relatively affordable transfer target for the aforementioned giants in the upcoming window.

Baldanzi, who looks up to Roma playmaker Paulo Dybala, has seen his valuation rise almost six-fold since the start of the season.
