Gattuso 'all set for Napoli'

In a sudden development, it is now claimed Napoli will appoint former Milan boss Gennaro Gattuso as early as this week.

CalcioNapoli24 reporter Ciro Venerato claims Gattuso “will be the new Napoli coach from Wednesday”, replacing the beleaguered Carlo Ancelotti.

Venerato explains how super-agent Jorge Mendes has been working as an intermediary to negotiate a deal between the 41-year-old and club President Aurelio De Laurentiis.

It comes after Tuttosport stated the World Cup winner would meet De Laurentiis in Rome today.

As it stands, Rino looks like taking over the reins regardless of what happens against Genk tomorrow.

Napoli need to beat the Belgian side to be sure of their place in the Champions League last 16 and a multi-million Euro windfall.
