The last 48 hours have been a major let down for Napoli, as a surprise attack for Nainggolan failed and the deal for Gonalons fell apart at the last minute.
However, the Partenopei are still linked to a host of names from across the continent and there are a few surprises. Two names that seem very difficult to pull off include Barcelona’s Alex Song and Rubin Kazan’s M’Vila. They have very high wages and that may derail Napoli’s efforts for the players before it even starts. Valencia’s Ever Banega has been linked with Milan and Napoli are not far at all behind for the Argentinian midfielder. Another intriguing name for the Azzurri is Jucilei from Anzhi, who reportedly wants to leave the Russian side.
Another name which has popped up on the radar is Jorginho from Hellas Verona. Di Marzio reported that Sporting Director Riccardo Bigon is working in Milan to bring in a new midfielder.
