Agent: ‘Napoli interest in Zaccagni’

Mattia Zaccagni’s agent confirms there are ‘several big clubs interested, including Napoli,’ but assures he’ll remain at Verona for this season.

The 25-year-old has contributed four goals and four assists in 15 Serie A appearances for Hellas this term, including a spectacular overhead kick winner at Spezia on Sunday.

“The lad is doing very well and there are several big clubs interested, including Napoli,” agent Fausto Pari told Radio Kiss Kiss.

“You’d have to ask Verona and right now it’s too early to say where he could go, but I doubt Hellas will let him leave before the end of the season.

“The clubs are all struggling during this pandemic and there aren’t many who could afford such a big expense in January. Napoli do have a director of sport like Cristiano Giuntoli who is good at anticipating the competition, so we’ll see.

“Mattia is very fond of the city of Verona, but clearly his dream is to play in a club that’s in Europe and then make his way to the Italy squad.”

Zaccagni has also been linked with Milan, Inter, Roma, Lazio and Sassuolo within Serie A.
