Napoli Not Going to Give Away Inter-Linked Di Lorenzo

Giovanni Di Lorenzo has surprisingly displayed some signs of restlessness as of late, but Napoli have no plans to sell him and surely won’t gift him even if he forced his way out. The Azzurri fear that Inter, which might need a man on the right wing in the summer, could be behind his malcontent. Or that they will at least try to take advantage of it, Radio Kiss Kiss informed (via SportFace).

The Scudetto holders want the simmering case to subside. President Aurelio De Laurentiis might change his strategy compared to the past and no longer force unhappy players to stay, Il Mattino relayed. On the other hand, the defender’s valuation is rich. He agreed to a long-term contract not long ago.

Napoli would eventually ask for €40M for Di Lorenzo. It’s unlikely the suitors will get there given his age. They will soon have a meeting with his agent, Mario Giuffredi. He will present them with a list of possible landing spots.

The representative will also demand a new contract for Alex Meret. His present one was automatically extended due to an appearance-related clause. However, it only lasts until 2025.

Our Take on Napoli and Di Lorenzo

He’ll probably stay put unless there are some serious problems behind the scenes that haven’t emerged yet. If he goes, he’ll most likely head abroad as De Laurentiis won’t do their rivals any favor. Even though he’s extremely solid and hasn’t lost a step, no team will come close to that price tag.
