Napoli have been having an underwhelming season this after fantastically securing The Scudetto last season and as such some of the big names are willing to leave according to the reports.

One of these players is captain and right back Giovanni DI Lorenzo.

According to Il Mattino, Manchester United are one of the 3 clubs that are eyeing the Italian, alongside fellow Premier League side Aston Villa and Italian giants Inter Milan.

Di Lorenzo’s consistent excellence since signing for the capital side has been a cornerstone of Napoli’s success.

A leader by example, he combines defensive solidity with an eye for goal, evidenced by his 2 goals and 7 assists across 40 appearances this campaign.

The 30-year-old has made a total of 223 appearances in all competitions for Napoli since signing from Empoli in 2019 with 167 of them have come in Serie A.

Despite extending his Napoli contract until 2028 last August, Di Lorenzo seems open to the allure of the Premier League. The possibility of joining a project with clear trophy ambitions could sway the defender, particularly if Napoli’s direction and managerial situation remain uncertain in the coming months.

Di Lorenzo has kept his form on a personal level this season despite all of Napoli’s struggles.

A season which has seen three different coaches in the dugout in Rudi Garcia, Walter Mazzarri and Francesco Calzona, it has been a mere shadow of their all-conquering team last season under Luciano Spaletti.

His great from under Spaletti continues as he looks set to have a starting role for Italy in the upcoming European Championship under the Italian manager.

Manchester United are in the market for defensive reinforcements, recognizing Di Lorenzo’s tactical acumen and reliability. His ability to contribute in the attacking third would be a valuable asset for either side.

His experience, leadership, and consistent performances make him a prized target as he has the ability to reinforce backlines and improve any team that wins his signature.
