Roberto Inglese is heading back to Parma, on a €2m loan with obligation to buy for €18m plus bonuses, after failing to get a game for Napoli.
According to both Sky Sport Italia and Sportitalia, the deal was struck this morning.
It’s a comeback for the 27-year-old, who Napoli purchased from Chievo for €12m in 2017, leaving him on loan at the Bentegodi for that season.
He then went out on loan to Parma for €3m last term, scoring nine goals in 25 Serie A appearances.
This move had included an option to buy for €25m, but it seems as if the Ducali have successfully renegotiated the deal.
Inglese will now go back to Parma on loan for €2m, with obligation to buy at the end of the season for €18m plus another €2m in potential performance-related bonuses.
The centre-forward leaves Napoli two years after his signature, without ever playing for the club.
