Napoli clinch €10m Di Lorenzo

Empoli right-back Giovanni Di Lorenzo is on the verge of a €10m move to Napoli and should have his medical on Thursday.

Sky Sport Italia, Sportitalia, La Gazzetta dello Sport and more all give the same information, that the deal has been done between the two clubs for approximately €10m.

A medical examination has been booked for Thursday, after which the player will put pen to paper on his contract.

Lazio, Roma and Torino had also been heavily linked with Di Lorenzo, but his performances for Empoli – who were relegated only on head-to-head record with Genoa – impressed Carlo Ancelotti enough to make the investment.

This was his first ever Serie A season, having helped Empoli to the Serie B title last term, and he certainly made his mark with five goals and three assists in 37 top flight games.
