It is now official that Napoli have signed Omar El Kaddouri from Brescia. “He is an important player for the present and future,” said Aurelio De Laurentiis.
The 22-year-old Moroccan creative midfielder had been in advanced negotiations with Parma, Genoa and Juventus, but those talks collapsed.
Over the last few days Napoli intervened  and tonight officially signed half his contract from Brescia in a co-ownership deal.
“El Kaddouri is an important player for the present and future of Napoli,” said President De Laurentiis.
“It took one minute to reach an agreement with Brescia President Gino Corioni and one more minute with agent Mino Raiola, who I always had a great rapport with, as he is a wonderful professional.”
