Pezzella agent: 'Continual Valencia contact'

Fiorentina defender German Pezzella is in ‘continual contact with Valencia,’ said his agent, with interest also from England, but Napoli have fallen away.

The Argentina international centre-back just turned 29 last month and is under contract at the Stadio Franchi until June 2022.

“He expressly told me that his mind is only on Fiorentina at this moment. He doesn’t want to get distracted by transfer gossip until the season has concluded,” agent Martin Guastadisegno told Tuttomercatoweb.

There have been repeated rumours of interest from Napoli, who see Pezzella as a replacement should Kalidou Koulibaly move on this summer.

“I haven’t had recent contact with Napoli,” insisted the representative.

“We are in continual contact with Valencia, though. They are interested, as are some English clubs who I cannot name. However, right now, he asked only to focus on the final weeks of this season.”
