Napoli are looking for a target to recruit in preparation for the departure of their main midfielder Piotr Zielinski.
Among Napoli’s three main midfielders, Zielinski is often rumored to be transferred. Last summer, he was shaken by West Ham United’s huge salary offer, but dramatically stayed. He is also rumored to move to Lazio recently. Manager Maurizio Sarri had a good relationship with Zielinski during his time at Napoli. If you are a midfielder who is needed for ‘Sariball’, you can push for Zielinski’s recruitment.
It is known that Napoli is considering various recruitment targets, even considering the possibility of a vacancy. According to local media such as ‘Calcho Mercato’, there are two players Napoli is aiming for. First, Lazar Samardzic is a proven prospect in Italy’s Serie A. Samardzic went through RB Leipzig, the cradle of prospects, but failed to settle down and moved to Udinese. He recorded 4 goals and 3 assists this season while playing as a starting midfielder. He is still only 21 years old, so he has a lot of potential to grow further. He could be a natural replacement for Zielinski in that he is a central midfielder with both attacking power. 온라인카지노
However, the transfer fee for Samarzic is expected to be around 30 million euros (approximately 43.9 billion won), which is a difficult amount to offer considering Napoli’s financial situation and player value.
Napoli general manager Cristiano Giuntoli is known to be keeping an eye on Thiago Almada as well. Almada is a 22-year-old prospect playing for Atlanta United of the American Major League Soccer (MLS). He has a more aggressive style than Samar Žić and is nicknamed the heir to Lionel Messi. Although he is still a promising player, he was selected as the winning member of Argentina at last year’s ‘2022 World Cup in Qatar’ and played some matches.
Atlanta paid 16 million dollars (about 21.3 billion won) for Armada last year, breaking a new MLS transfer fee record. To sign such a player in one year, Napoli must invest a considerable amount of transfer fee.
Napoli is likely to transfer Victor Osimen at the forefront and Min-jae Kim at center back. With this season’s championship clinched, general manager Juntoli’s ability to supply players must be demonstrated once again in order to maintain competitiveness.
