‘Napoli rejected €8m Immobile, Verdi…’

Ciro Immobile’s agent claims Napoli rejected the chance to sign the Lazio striker for just €8m.

Immobile’s value is thought to be in the region of €70m after his return of 26 goals in just 24 appearances for Lazio this season, but Alessandro Moggi revealed Napoli could have snapped up Italy international for much less, as well as advising Simone Verdi to stay at Bologna.

“He wouldn’t play regularly like he’s doing at Bologna. He must end the season [with Bologna] and then weigh things up properly.

“Immobile? De Laurentiis could’ve signed him for €8m, but he didn’t want him. That’s the great De Laurentiis for you…”
