Napoli: Rog to Sevilla 'possible'

Napoli owner Aurelio De Laurentiis has confirmed Marko Rog could join Sevilla but suggested that he will only let the midfielder leave permanently.

Sevilla emerged as Rog’s favoured destination over Schalke on Thursday, and De Laurentiis claimed the Croatian would be allowed to join the Spanish high-fliers, providing Napoli Coach Carlo Ancelotti gave the green light.

“I’m not used to buying players and then loaning them out,” he told ABC de Sevilla.

“It’s not in my philosophy and we don’t want to do that. Rog to Sevilla? It’s possible, but they’re not the only club who want the Croatian.

“There are many teams interested in him. I have to go back to Italy and talk to Ancelotti. Once I do that, we’ll make a decision and know what to do.”
