Napoli Find Replacement Should They Solve Lozano Issue

Hirving Lozano is still in limbo, as the negotiation to extend his expiring contract hasn’t progressed, nor has he fetched offers that could entice Napoli to sell as of late. The most convincing bid came from Los Angeles FC, but the transfer window has shut close in the MLS.

Per Corriere dello Sport, the American franchise is still the most likely landing spot. It’ll reignite its interest in January if he doesn’t leave before deadline day. At that point, coming to terms with Napoli will be easier. His price tag will naturally decrease with just a few months left on his deal.

The Partenopei currently consider Jesper Lindstrom the top candidate to succeed Lozano. If the conditions were acceptable, they could seal the deal even before the departure of their outcast. They’d bring him over in the winter once the roster spot opens up.

The 23-year-old is coming off two highly productive seasons where he has recorded 14 goals and 14 assists in 78 matches. He’s not a pure winger. Juventus have been keeping tabs on him too. However, Die Adler reportedly asks for €30/35M.

Our Take on Napoli, Lozano, and Lindstrom

It’d be unusual for them to keep him, but they successfully pulled off this move with Arkadiusz Milik in the past and still managed to get something from his departure despite the unfavorable situation.
