Napoli set for crucial talks with Alessandro Buongiorno’s representatives


Napoli are gearing up for a pivotal meeting with the representatives of Torino defender Alessandro Buongiorno, as the club looks to bolster its defensive options. The talks, scheduled for Tuesday, are expected to focus on reaching an agreement regarding the player’s salary.

Sky Sport Italia report how the meeting is seen as a critical step in Napoli’s pursuit of the 24-year-old Italian center-back. Discussions will not only cover wage terms but also explore the possibility of including a release clause in the contract, which would become active after the first two years. Image rights, often a complex issue in Italian football negotiations, will also be on the agenda.

If these talks prove successful, Napoli plan to initiate direct contact with Torino to negotiate a transfer fee. This two-pronged approach – securing player agreement before club negotiations – is a common strategy in modern football transfers.

Buongiorno, who has been a standout performer for Torino, is seen as a key target for Napoli as they aim to strengthen their backline. The defender’s strong performances in Serie A have attracted attention from several clubs, but Napoli appear to be leading the race for his signature.

This potential move comes as part of Napoli’s broader strategy to reinforce their squad following a challenging season. The club is keen to add quality and depth to their defensive options, and Buongiorno is viewed as a player who could make an immediate impact.
