Malcuit in at Napoli, Llorente out

Napoli have brought Kevin Malcuit back into the squad for the first time since his injury, but Fernando Llorente has been removed from the Serie A list.

Each club can only register a certain number of players in their Serie A squad lists, with the ability to change them up during the campaign.

Malcuit has been out injured since tearing his anterior cruciate ligament in October 2019.

He is back in the squad list for Sunday’s encounter with Udinese, but someone has to make way.

Napoli bid for Petagna

SPAL have rejected a €21m offer from Napoli for striker Andrea Petagna, according to Sky Sport Italia.

Napoli have been busy in this transfer window, signing midfielders Diego Demme, Stanislav Lobotka and are closing in on winger Matteo Politano.

However according to Sky Sport Italia, the Partenopei aren’t finished.

Striker Fernando Llorente isn’t in coach Rino Gattuso’s plans, and Gattuso wants another striker.

This has led Napoli to making a €21m plus bonuses offer for Petagna.

Politano agrees to Napoli move

Inter’s Matteo Politano has finally relented and agreed to join Napoli, according to Sky Sport Italia.

The winger’s move to Roma collapsed last week due to issues surrounding the Leonardo Spinazzola part of the swap deal, and nothing to do with Politano himself.

There had been hope on the player’s behalf that a deal could still be worked out between the Giallorossi and Inter.

However it seems unlikely, as there isn’t a good relationship at present between the sides in the aftermath of the move breaking down.

“We’ve had no contact with[Cristiano] Giuntoli for Fernando Llorente. We have to look at the balance sheet and our coffers,” Faggiano told Radio station Punto Nuovo.
