Napoli president has no intention of letting go of two of Napoli’s most prized assets in the summer
Napoli are serious contenders in both Serie A and the Champions League this season. With the Partenopei creating a 15-point gap between themselves and the second-placed Inter, Luciano Spaletti’s men are all but ensured their scudetto win. This has led to several clubs enquiring about Napoli’s star players, but Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis is adamant that he wants to keep his stars.
Napoli’s stars not going anywhere
As far as Napoli’s stars go, Osimhen and Khvicha Kvaratskhelia are the first two names to pop into our head. Their partnership is perhaps the strongest in Europe. The duo has 49 goal contributions between them this season and have had an immeasurable impact on Napoli.
“These new players have proved to be reliable. The thing that I like is that this side goes beyond single players. The fact that we now have Osimhen and Kvaratskhelia, Kim [Min-jae] and other players in midfield makes means this team will last in time,” the Napoli president told TNT Mexico.
“I am very good at making contracts, so when they [Osimhen and Kvaratskhelia] come to me, they are blocked, so keeping them here won’t be difficult. However, never say never. Sometimes there are offers you can’t refuse, so you never know. To me, we’ll see them shine for a long time.”
The pair were in action yesterday as Napoli eased past Eintracht Frankfurt 2-0. Kvaratskhelia missed a penalty but then assisted Di Lorenzo on Napolii’s second. Osimhen scored Napoli’s first as well.
