Lazio confirmed Antonio Candreva “has asked to leave” after agreeing a deal with Napoli, but he’s still working out personal terms.
It was already expected that the Italy winger would move on this summer amid interest from Napoli, Inter and Chelsea.
“With regards to Candreva, he has asked to leave and we’ve already secured a replacement if he does go,” director of sport Igli Tare explained in a Press conference.
New Coach Simone Inzaghi also added “Candreva asked to go. He had seven good games with me, but then there are other needs.”
Candreva’s agent admitted Lazio and Napoli had agreed on a transfer fee, so now he is discussing personal terms with the Partenopei.
It’s reported the 29-year-old is valued at €28m, including bonuses.
The wages on offer from Napoli appear to be €2m per year compared to Candreva’s request of €2.5m.
