Napoli Planning to Go After Touted Eredivisie Couple

Napoli are laying the groundwork for a busy summer, where they’ll part ways with several players who will need to be replaced adequately. On top of Victor Osimhen, recent newcomers Jesper Lindstrom, Natan, and Jens Cajuste will be made available.

Per Il Mattino, the Partenopei are actively looking for a new director. Bologna’s Giovanni Sartori and Parma’s Mauro Pederzoli are two options on their shortlist.

Napoli are keeping close tabs on Jonathan David as a potential Osimhen heir. But they are also keen on Feyenoord’s Santiago Gimenez and Bologna’s Joshua Zirkzee. The former is being tracked by the biggest clubs in Europe as he has been filling his boots since moving to the Netherlands. He has tallied 24 goals and 5 assists across all competitions this season.

The Azzurri will also need at least one new center-back. The latest name in their crosshairs in Olivier Boscagli. They are ready to offer €18M. He joined PSV from Nice in 2019. He has accumulated 153 appearances, 9 goals, and 6 assists since. He can also play as a left-back.

Our Take on Napoli

They’ll have the most to do out of any big team in the summer, but every target is premature since it’s unknown which European competition they’ll participate in and who will lead their mercato. Still, finding a rugged, reliable, and preferably experienced defender will be the second order of business after the striker. They should play it safe and buy from Serie A, even though it’ll be pricier.
