Napoli Keen on Two of The Brightest Talents in Serie A

Napoli have been thriving so far, but that isn’t stopping them from thinking about how to improve the squad, and they set their sights on two budding prodigies, Lazar Samardzic and Tommaso Baldanzi, who are breaking out this season, Calciomercato informs.

The Udinese midfielder is hitting his stride in his second campaign in Serie A. He’s getting consistent playing time, and he has recorded two goals and one assist. He has already matched his entire production from 2020/2021. The Partenopei have had some talks with the Bianconeri, but his valuation is already robust, around €20M. He was brought to Italy for €3M from RB Leipzig.

Baldanzi figures to be less expensive than Samardzic, which could favor Napoli, as they rarely hand out large fees. Empoli coach Paolo Zanetti noticed him during the summer and promoted him to the first team. He has bagged two goals in five appearances. He could have had a bigger haul if he didn’t miss time with an early injury.

The 19-year-old made his Serie A debut late last season. He has been highly productive at the Primavera level, registering 24 goals and 14 assists in 55 games. He has 12 caps and scored twice with Italy U-19.

Our Take on Napoli Tracking Samardzic and Baldanzi

They are surely two players to keep an eye on and destined to go places because their sheer talent is apparent. On the other hand, the Azzurri have had major success bargain-hunting abroad, and that will probably continue to be the case since price tags tend to get excessive in a hurry in Serie A. The Empoli starlet has tantalizing skills, but he would be hard to integrate as a pure no.10.
