Official: Di Lorenzo joins Napoli

Napoli have completed the signing of right-back Giovanni Di Lorenzo from Empoli for €9.5m.

Di Lorenzo passed his medical with Napoli last week and becomes their first recruit of the summer.

“I’m happy about my new adventure at a prestigious club like Napoli,” the 25-year-old told his new club’s official website.

“I can’t wait to start the new season and get to know my new teammates in Dimaro.”

A former striker, he scored five goals and provided three assists in 37 appearances for Empoli during the 2018-19 campaign – his first as a Serie A player.

The Tuscans finished the season level on points with Genoa but were relegated due to their inferior head-to-head.
