Graziani: 'James at all costs'

Ciccio Graziani confirms Carlo Ancelotti “talked about Nicolas Pepe and Mauro Icardi, but he wants James Rodriguez at all costs” for Napoli.

Former player and Coach Graziani was speaking to Radio Kiss Kiss and revealed some behind the scenes sensations.

“I had dinner with Ancelotti, he is expecting a couple of top buys from the President. The players said the same, they want to win now.

“Carlo is expecting the arrival of James. If Icardi should arrive too, then the gap with Juventus would be noticeably reduced.”

Napoli President Aurelio De Laurentiis has hinted he could go after Lille wide forward Pepe if Real Madrid refuse to release James on loan with option to buy.

“Ancelotti did talk to me about Pepe, but the main issue is that he wants James at all costs.”
