Trio make Cigarini contact

Three Serie A clubs are interested in Luca Cigarini, the Napoli midfielder's agent has revealed.

The 25-year-old is back at the Stadio San Paolo after spending last term on loan at Sevilla in Spain.

"We're waiting for developments," representative Giovanni Bia told Radio Kiss Kiss when questioned on the playmaker.

"Something should move in the last two weeks of August. Until then, Luca is acting like a true professional.

"He's training hard and doing all that he can to convince Walter Mazzarri, but the player is not part of the Coach's plans."

The ex-Under-21 international has been linked with a move to former club Atalanta, but they are not the only side to have come forward.

"Atalanta would be a welcome solution," added Bia. "There was also an enquiry from Fiorentina and Florence could be an excellent place for his re-launch.

"There was also an interest in him from Palermo."

Ex-Parma man Cigarini is contracted with the Azzurri until June 2014.
