Napoli close to free agent Lodi

Napoli are prepared to give free agent and free kick specialist Francesco Lodi a contract.

The transfer window has now closed, but clubs are still allowed to sign players who are out of contract.

Lodi fits that bill and Radio Marte claim Napoli have approached the ex-Catania and Parma midfielder.

The Partenopei tried to sign Roberto Soriano from Sampdoria, but the paperwork was not delivered before the deadline.

It’s believed 31-year-old Lodi could fill that role at least for the next six months.

He is well-known for his free kicks, rivalling Andrea Pirlo in the Serie A conversion charts.
