Napoli targeting Cassano & Leonardi?

Reports in the Italian Press this morning suggest that Napoli will look to replicate Parma’s success this season by signing two of their key members.

The Crociati have been second only to Juventus in terms of form since the turn of the year.

And Tuttosport write that the Partenopei are keen to get on the back of that triumph by signing striker Antonio Cassano and sporting director Pietro Leonardi.

Cassano has been like a goalscorer reborn this term, netting 11 goals in 25 games for the Ennio Tardini club.

The Italy international has struggled a supposed ‘big clubs’ before, so it is unclear whether he would like a move south.

Leonardi meanwhile, has been praised for his work with Parma, attracting the likes of Cassano and keeping stars such Jonathan Biabiany and Gabriel Paletta.

Current Napoli director Riccardo Bigon is said to be leaving the summer, clearing the way for Leonardi to take his place.
