Three candidates to replace Gattuso at Napoli

Napoli are considering the possible replacements for Gennaro Gattuso and have drawn up a list of three candidates, according to Sky Sport Italia.

The broadcaster reveals the Partenopei have already started planning for a possible life without coach Gennaro Gattuso at the helm.

It seems difficult for Gattuso to stay at the Stadio Diego Maradona, even if he was to secure a place in the Champions League for the Azzurri.

The report claims President Aurelio De Laurentiis has already drawn up a list of potential replacements and Luciano Spalletti is not surprisingly on the list.

The former Inter and Roma coach has been mentioned in links and talks with the club in recent weeks.

LOSC Lille coach Christophe Galtier is also mentioned by Sky Sport Italia as a candidate for the position in Naples.

The 54-year-old has been in charge of Lille since Decembed 2017, and his contract expires in June 2021.

The last name on the list is Vincenzo Italiano, who has helped Spezia to Serie A and seems to be able to keep them up in his first season in the top flight.

The broadcaster reports it seems like the relationship between Gattuso and De Laurentiis was never really resolved, but that the patron would try to convince the coach to stay if he manages to bring Napoli to the Champions League.
