Raiola impressed with Napoli

The agent Mino Raiola claims Napoli have two great players lined up in the January transfer window.

Known as the Pizza Man, Raiola was behind Zlatan Ibrahimovic's move to Milan in the summer as well as Mario Balotelli's to Manchester City.

Speaking to Radio Kiss Kiss, Raiola was asked for his impression of Napoli's moves on the transfer market.

"The director of sport Riccardo Bigon is doing a great job. He is moving on more fronts and on very interesting players too.

"But there is a lot of competition. He tends to move in the shadows so as not to create more competition, but let's say that the competitions on the two players he wants to bring to Napoli is already ruthless.

"I cannot give you any names. I can only say that both players don't play in the Italian League. They are not from France or England."

Asked if he meant Spain, Raiola said: "No, I am not telling you.

"I don't exclude the fact that even without these two signings Napoli can win the title.

"The group is united and inserting more players might be difficult."
