After the famous “no” in January, Napoli look to have finally convinced Simone Verdi in joining the Azzurri for the 2018/2019 Serie A season.
Highly trusted transfer guru Gianluca Di Marzio, of Sky Sport Italia, states that Verdi will put pen to paper on either Monday or Tuesday. Di Marzio goes on to add that the contract is valid for 5 years.
Napoli were very adamant in acquiring Verdi from Bologna in January to bolster not only their attacking options, but as well as their overall depth. After seemingly closing the deal, the Italian international gave a “no” to Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis, thus ensuing a media frenzy over whether his decision to reject a destination such as Napoli was right or wrong.
Napoli have finally secured the signature of Simone Verdi, all that remains to be seen is how he will be used in Carlo Ancelotti’s new Napoli.
