Rossi: 'Szoboszlai ideal for Napoli'

Hungary CT Marco Rossi believes RB Salzburg midfielder Dominik Szoboszlai would be the ‘ideal’ reinforcement for Gennaro Gattuso’s Napoli.

Napoli are said to be leading the race to sign Szoboszlai, who has also been linked with the likes of Milan and Arsenal, and Rossi is certain the 19-year-old would flourish under Gattuso.

“He’s a 19-year-old who made his debut for the national team at the age of 18. He’s a very elegant and talented player, rich in technique,” the Italian told CalcioNapoli24.

“He plays between the lines and is good at assisting in the final third. He has great physicality and is tall but, despite its height, also has an excellent burst of pace.

“If he decides to accept an offer from Serie A, it would complement his technical expertise with a couple of things where he still needs to improve, for example his defensive game.

“Tactically speaking, Salzburg have played him high up on the left and he’s posted good numbers there, but in possession he often plays between the lines to make room for the full-back.

“In a 4-3-3, instead, he could be a box-to-box midfielder, capable of supporting the centre-forward.

“Szoboszlai expresses himself best in a team who play positionally. In Italy, Napoli must play football and not counterattack because they’re among the best teams in Italy, [even if] they might suffer in a couple of games every season.

“Dominik would be the ideal player for [Napoli’s] style of play.”
