NAPLES – Another central to complete the department with two players per position. The Naples has chosen his fourth defender, his name is Leo Skiri Østigard22 years old, is Norwegian, owned by the Brightonand could immediately return to Italy after six months on loan at Genoa. The closure is not far away, it seems more complicated to predict what will happen between the posts: De Laurentiis has not yet received answers from Ospina, Meret’s future is linked to the Colombian, Sirigu has been renewed esteem and trust. TO midfield there is plenty, there is a list of favorites but it will be consulted only in case of departures, for example by Demme or Fabian Ruiz. He too, like Koulibaly, has his contract expiring in 2023 and the renewal appears complex, more than the possibility that some tempting offer will arrive.
The central quarter
Among the various needs, the Naples accelerates for the defenderthe fourth, to be inserted behind Koulibaly, Rrahmani And Juan Jesus. The choice fell on Leo Østigard. The sports director Giuntoli followed him during his months at Genoa (15 appearances, one goal and three yellow cards), he appreciated his qualities, he talked about it first with the entourage and then with Brighton, the company that owns his card. The Norwegian defender, 22, will cost just under five million. The player is happy to move to Naples, among his idols there is Fabio Cannavaro with whom he shares the elevation in spite of a physique that is anything but a cuirassiere (184 centimeters high).
Between the poles
De Laurentiis waits Ospinais the priority of the Naples (and Spalletti) before moving somewhere else. The president has opened for renewal (for two years), the Colombian hesitates (aims for a three-year period), evaluates other proposals, also holds the future of Meret in suspense, who has the contract expiring in 2023 and wants technical guarantees to stay. After years as an alternative, Meret (which Turin likes) feels ready to be the owner. He wants a chance because he knows he deserves it, he believes he can take advantage of it, he waits for signs from Napoli. It does the same Sirigu, free after the end of his adventure at Genoa, which Napoli has chosen as an experienced goalkeeper, the second-hand safe (35 years) which is not the only solution. Also like, to Naples, Vicario, Musso and Gollini. Priority to Ospina, but De Laurentiis will not wait forever. News within a few days.
The Soler situation
Sooner or later, De Laurentiis’s phone will ring, whether it’s a message or a call. Fabian he will have to answer Naples, he has a contract expiring in 2023, he will hardly renew, he can expire or leave immediately, looking for offers that are attractive. This is why the club is cautious and has put Carlos in its sights Soler25, midfielder of the Valencia, also expiring in a year and therefore, on the contrary, an opportunity for those who want to buy, in this case (also) Napoli. But in the median, also considered the position of Demme, who may want to try a new experience, the list of candidates is extensive. Beyond Nandez of Cagliari and Veretout leaving Rome, old goals never completely removed, Napoli does not lose sight Svanberg of Bologna and Barak of Verona. Waiting for Fabian and in any case always ready to evaluate every offer. Nobody is not transferable.
