Agent: ‘Many teams want Defrel’

Gregoire Defrel’s agent says “many teams are interested” in the Sassuolo forward, and doesn’t rule out a Napoli move.

The Frenchman scored a late equaliser to earn the Neroverdi a point at Sassuolo last night, and his impressive form has inevitably led to speculation he could join a bigger club.

“His goal at San Paolo is the calling card of someone with his characteristics,” Giampiero Pocetta said on Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli.

“It doesn’t surprise me, because he’s an extraordinary player. Napoli are a team that play good football, the best in Italy, though sometimes they run the risk of admiring themselves too much.

“There are many teams interested in the lad, also abroad. We’ll get to the Christmas break and see what happens, but it’s up to Sassuolo.

“They’ll decide what’s best for the player and Sassuolo. It’s obvious that Napoli would be an attractive destination though, for their fans and their history.”
