Immobile to Napoli?

Ciro Immobile’s father has been forced to deny a shock report that stated Napoli had agreed terms with the Lazio striker.

Napoli’s former Press officer Paolo Paoletti claimed on Tuesday that the Partenopei had ‘already closed’ a deal with Immobile, who was born in southern Italy.

However, father Antonio told “He’s building a case and I’m angry because I’ve never talked to anyone about anything like that.

“Ciro also asked me for an explanation, but absolutely none of it is true, neither did I confirm the news nor that there were negotiations with Napoli for my son.”

The 29-year-old’s agent admitted in January that he would not be able to turn down an offer from Napoli.
