Napoli have been heavily linked with a move for Manuel Lazzari over the course of the transfer window.
Italian source claim that Napoli are in advanced talks to bring SPAL right-sided midfielder Manuel Lazzari.
The Italy international was signed by SPAL in July 2013 from Giacomense. The 25-year-old has a contract until 2023 with the club.
Lazzari made 167 appearances across all competitions for SPAL, scoring 4 goals and supplying 22 assists in return.
He’s incredibly experienced for a 25-year-old and still has tons of room for growth.
The Italy international has impressed in Serie A this season and is starting to attract the interest of bigger clubs.
Napoli have built a reputation for recruiting young talent from within Europe, predominantly targeting those with sell-on value and immense potential.
Carlo Ancelotti is a long term admirer of Lazzari and believes he can get the most out of the Italy international.
According to Calciomercato, “Napoli appear to be very close to finding an agreement with SPAL for promising Manuel Lazzari. Calciomercato.com sources have learned that the Naples club have put in an offer of almost €20m for the right sided player, who has impressed for SPAL this season. Napoli are believed to already have an agreement in place with Lazzari, who has also had interest from Lazio in the past, but it appears that the deal will only be completed in the summer as the 25 year old wants to continue to help SPAL in their fight against relegation. Napoli coach Carlo Ancelotti is said to have given the transfer the green light, and Napoli are now clearly in pole position to land the Italian international.”
