Defrel’s agent, Giampiero Procetta, talked to Radio Kiss Kiss about the possibility of a transfer to Napoli.
Gregoire Defrel was definitely a protagonist on Monday night, scoring a beautiful volley to put Sassuolo level with Napoli in a breathtaking 1-1 draw. Interviewed by Radio Kiss Kiss, his agent initially praised Defrel’s performance against Napoli:
“I’m not surprised by his goal, I know him very well and he’s an extraordinary striker. That was not an easy goal: it was a mix of speed, aggressiveness, intuition and technique.”
Then, the agent seemed to open up towards a potential future with the partenopei for Defrel:
“Will he leave Sassuolo in January? Football has taught me that anything can happen overnight. Many big clubs are interested in Gregoire, so we’ll see what happens after the break. On Monday Napoli confirmed that they play the best football in Italy. They’re a club we could never say no to, their history and fans are exceptional!”
Defrel’s goal will have definitely impressed Napoli gaffer Maurizio Sarri and, with Arek Milik’s injury and Manolo Gabbiadini’s poor form, the Frenchman might be the striker that Napoli are looking for.
