Still no Napoli deal for Diakite

The agent of Modibo Diakite says he’s ready to listen to other interested clubs given Napoli’s inability to wrap up a transfer.

The Lazio defender will be available on a free at the end of the season when his contract expires and it looked like a move to the San Paolo was on the horizon.

“We’re in a phase where we are quite far away, almost close to extinction,” Ulisse Savini told Radio CRC on Monday.

“We’ve agreed terms, but it seems that Napoli don’t have the certainty required to complete the transfer.

“We are at Napoli’s disposal, but I am obliged to look around as that is my job.

“Napoli have told me that they are waiting for certain situations at the club to be resolved, but if a player is good then it doesn’t matter who is the Coach of the team.

“I understand that Walter Mazzarri wants my client so we are rooting for Mazzarri to stay.

“We won’t close the Napoli door though, not until we have an agreement with someone else. What we haven’t been able to do with Napoli for two months could still be done in a day…”

The 26-year-old stopper has appeared in just one Coppa Italia game this season after refusing to renew terms at Lazio.
