Emanuele Giaccherini was in talks with Sparta Prague and Chievo, revealed his agent, but Napoli refused to pay the salary.
The winger was on the transfer market this summer, though proposals tended to be loans or to clubs he was not inclined to join.
“Chievo asked me for Giaccherini on loan,” representative Furio Valcareggi told the Corriere di Verona newspaper.
“Emanuele would’ve happily accepted, but nothing came of it because Napoli were not prepared to cover his wages.”
