Napoli Informed of Rich Price Tag of Feyenoord Ace

Napoli are preparing for the departure of Victor Osimhen, and Santiago Gimenez is one of the top names on their shortlist of replacements. However, considering his numbers in the Eredivisie, they’ll have to spend big to acquire him, La Gazzetta dello Sport informs.

The Mexican marksman has a €50M valuation. There’ll be no shortage of suitors for him. He has bagged 47 goals in 80 games in two seasons with Feyenoord and has been prolific in the European cups as well.

Napoli aren’t scared of the price tag of Gimenez but will have to compete with several teams. Their revolution up front might not stop at Osimhen. PSG and Arsenal are currently considered the frontrunners to sign the Nigerian star. The team expects one of his suitors to activate his €120M release clause.

The Azzurri are also pondering the future of Giacomo Raspadori and Giovanni Simeone. They paid €35M for the former, and he hasn’t entirely lived up to expectations. His versatility has worked against him. Instead, El Cholito has been pining for more playing time.

Lazio are in the market for a new center-forward as they might part ways with Ciro Immobile. Igor Tudor already coached the Argentine at Verona.

Our Take on Napoli and Gimenez

Their coffers will be full if Osimhen leaves, but that doesn’t necessarily mean they’ll splurge for his replacement. They might take multiple stabs. They would need to switch to 4-2-3-1 or 4-4-2 to fully exploit Raspadori. It might help other attackers too.
