Giaccherini agent wanted Napoli move

Emanuele Giaccherini’s agent has admitted that he tried to force his client into a move to Napoli.

The former Juventus man signed for Sunderland this summer after impressing at the Confederations Cup.

But the 28-year-old’s representative has conceded that he attempted to convince the Partenopei to sign the Italy international.

“I proposed Giaccherini to Napoli,” Furio Valcareggi told Radio Kiss Kiss. “But [sporting director Riccardo] Bigon refused.

“All this dates back to before he signed for Juventus [from Siena].

“Emanuele decided to go to Juve, and everything changed.”
