The reigning champions have set their sights on Empoli talent Tommaso Baldanzi and have reportedly approached Empoli to begin exploring a deal.
The 20-year-old Italian shone in his first full season in Serie A, scoring four goals in 26 league games. His creativity and technical ability attracted the attention of a number of top teams across Italy, and his work at the Under-20 World Cup with the Azzurrini further boosted his stock. Now that Napoli have appointed Rudi Garcia as their new head coach, work can begin on the summer transfer market. Aurelio De Laurentiis hopes to build on the Scudetto success and is ready to invest to strengthen the team. La Gazzetta dello Sport reports how Napoli have approached Empoli to start discussing a move for Baldanzi, keen to beat their Serie A rivals. The Tuscan outfit want €15 million for the talented 20-year-old, an affordable price for the Scudetto holders.
