Leonardo Pavoletti’s proposed switch to Napoli from Genoa is reportedly being held up by an issue concerning image rights.
According to Calciomercato.com, Pavoletti was due to undergo his Napoli medical at 12:00 GMT on Wednesday, but the perennial problem of image rights prevented the striker from doing so.
Aurelio De Laurentiis’ insistence on all image rights belonging to the Partenopei means that any new players must end all existing arrangements with sponsors before joining the club.
Nonetheless, the website adds this is a formality and that the attacker, who is expected to wear the No 9 jersey at the San Paolo, will soon get the green light to sign on down south.
