Inler-Napoli tussle over sponsor

Gokhan Inler has still not completed his move to Napoli and it's reported the sticking point is his sponsorship deal.

The Udinese midfielder has been in advanced negotiations for some time and was expected to be at the San Paolo by now after Juventus seemed to pull out of the race.

Instead, the Gazzetta dello Sport claims talks have ground to a halt over his current sponsorship deal with Nike.

They also sponsor the Switzerland team, but Napoli insist on controlling Inler's image rights as part of the contract.

Donadel to Napoli is a done deal

It's not yet official but Marco Donadel is understood to have agreed a move from Fiorentina to Napoli.

Donadel, 28, is available on a free transfer given that his contract in Tuscany will expire at the end of this month.

It is understood that the former Under-21 international has accepted a four-year contract at the Stadio San Paolo.

Donadel will fill the void left by Michele Pazienza who yesterday completed his Bosman switch from Napoli to Juventus.

Caracciolo not off to Napoli

Brescia transfer consultant Gianluca Nani has rejected claims that Andrea Caracciolo is heading to Napoli.

The Italian has been suggested as a possible new signing for the Azzurri given their search for a hitman.

However, speaking with Radio CRC on Thursday, Nani insisted that the Stadio San Paolo wouldn't be Caracciolo's next destination.

"I think Caracciolo is an under-rated player when you consider that he has scored 60 goals in three seasons," Nani noted.

Lucarelli fears Napoli axe

Cristiano Lucarelli fears that his Napoli spell has come to an end after an injury-hit campaign at the San Paolo.

The veteran attacker joined the Azzurri from Parma last summer on a loan deal with the option to buy.

However, Lucarelli snapped knee ligaments in September during his second game for the outfit and was rarely used once he returned to action in January.

"The club's silence leads me to believe that they don't want to keep me," the forward told Radio CRC.
