Pavoletti set for Napoli

Leonardo Pavoletti will reportedly start training with Napoli tomorrow, after special permission from Genoa.

The striker has agreed to sign for the Partenopei, and it appears the deal is definitively on after a series of delays.

There was a dispute with image rights which delayed the signing, and the team doctor had concerns over his fitness.

Because of the latter issue, Genoa have given Pavoletti permission to head to Castel Volturno to begin work on a special training program designed to get him fit as soon as possible.

Napoli in Pavoletti delay?

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.
