Napoli Steadfast in Di Lorenzo and Kvaratskhelia Sagas

Despite the declarations by their respective entourages, Napoli are determined to keep both Giovanni Di Lorenzo and Khvicha Kvaratskhelia. The agent of the fullback clearly asked out, while the father and representative of the Georgian talisman were a little more subtle.

According to Gianluca Di Marzio, the Azzurri are in talks to try mending fences to continue relying on the duo. It might be more challenging in the captain’s case. He was often targeted by the fans throughout the season and was irked by the fact that president Aurelio De Laurentiis didn’t consider him untouchable. He perceived it as a vote of no-confidence.

In addition to attempting to make peace with Di Lorenzo, the Napoli hierarchy will soon meet Kvaratskhelia to make it clear that he’s not for sale. Director Giovanni Manna could fly to Germany to relay the club’s stance.

The forward has a long-term contract but has been due for an extension and pay bump for ages. His father and agent indicated it’d be a lost year if he stayed since the Partenopei won’t play in the Champions League.

Napoli also have another affair on their hands in addition to Di Lorenzo and Kvaratskhelia. At this stage, they haven’t received any offer close to Victor Osimhen’s nine-digit release clause. On top of the magnitude of the fee, the rich wages of the Nigerian star are a big obstacle too. They’d be an issue for the Campanian side as well. They had agreed to a wealthy renewal last season just to delay his departure and cash in more handsomely.
