Napoli’s Leo Ostigard appears to be on the path to remaining with the club, as his impressive performance against Lazio last night seems to have convinced the Azzurri not to part ways with the Norwegian defender in the winter transfer window. Despite interest from other clubs, including Udinese and Torino, Napoli seems inclined to retain Ostigard, a decision that has garnered praise from the fans on social media.
Sky Sport Italia report that Ostigard had been a sought-after player in recent days, with Udinese in particular seeking a replacement for Nehuen Perez (who is set to join Napoli) and Torino considering defensive reinforcements due to Alessandro Buongiorno’s injury. Both clubs were also vying for the services of Matteo Lovato from Salernitana, with a decision expected later today.
The momentum now points towards Napoli keeping the Norwegian defender, leaving Udinese and Torino to explore alternative options for their defensive needs. Ostigard’s strong showing and the positive response from Napoli supporters further solidify his position within the team. As the winter transfer window unfolds, the scenario surrounding Matteo Lovato’s decision will likely impact the final decisions of Udinese and Torino in their pursuit of defensive reinforcements.
