Raspadori Asks Out amid Napoli and Juventus Interest

Giacomo Raspadori is ready to leave Sassuolo to move to a bigger team, as Napoli and Juventus are hot on his trail. He wants the club to let him go to have the opportunity to play in the Champions League. He has two years on his contract with the Neroverdi.

As per Gianluca Di Marzio, the attacker is angling to depart and voiced his intentions to coach Alessio Dionisi. However, it’s up to CEO Giovanni Carnevali to decide. The director stated a few days ago that he would rather avoid major departures after the start of the season.

Despite the desire of the player, Sassuolo want €40M from Napoli or Juventus to sell Raspadori. The Azzurri have reached agreement with the 22-year-old and have lodged a €32M offer. The Bianconeri will meet his agents later today.

The Partenopei likely intended to foot such acquisition through the sale of Piotr Zielinski to West Ham. While they were about to come to terms on a €30M fee plus €15M add-ons, the Pole turned down the destination, Tuttomercatoweb informs.

Our Take on Napoli and Juventus Pursuing Raspadori

While this is a positive development for the suitors, it may not be decisive just yet. Domenico Berardi had done the same in previous summers, and he wasn’t let go. The Azzurri very rarely reach that kind of numbers when it comes to purchases, and Zielinski staying doesn’t help. The Old Lady drops the bag more easily if they really like a player. Despite his clear potential, there are wiser ways for them to spend since it’s not straightforward how his skill-set and role would fit into their scheme.
