Di Lorenzo

Di Lorenzo ‘first choice’ for Thiago Motta


Napoli defender Giovanni Di Lorenzo looks set to leave the club this summer, and is being closely tracked by Juventus. The Bianconeri are keeping tabs on the situation, after the players agent confirmed twice that the 30-year-old full-back would be looking to leave the club, despite the arrival of Antonio Conte.

Transfer journalist Alfredo Pedulla reports that Di Lorenzo has made a decisive choice: he wants to leave Napoli. Juventus have emerged as the frontrunner for his singing, showing more interest than Inter and clearly ahead of other European clubs vying for Di Lorenzo’s signature.

Pedulla writes that the motivations behind Di Lorenzo’s decision remain his own, and only the Napoli captain will be able to share the details if and when he chooses to do so. For Di Lorenzo, this decision is final, transcending even the persuasive efforts of Antonio Conte, who has been trying to convince him to stay in line with a recently renewed contract that extends until 2028.

While there might be a clarifying conversation in the near future, the current stance of Di Lorenzo goes beyond any face-to-face meeting with Napoli’s new coach. The coming days will reveal more about the situation, but as of now, it is clear that Di Lorenzo is a top priority for the Juventus of the future.
