In his first season in the Italian to flight, Empoli's Giovanni Di Lorenzo managed to make an impressive impact, scoring 5 goals from right-back. His excellent performances didn't go unnoticed to big clubs, especially Napoli, who have set their sights on him.
The defender addressed this topic in an interview with Corriere dello Sport: "It would be a dream to play for Napoli in the future. Empoli and Napoli have a relationship that facilitated the deal between them in the past, it is like it was meant to be. I promised to my girlfriend that if I signed for a big club we would get married, and I am a man of my word. I am not insesitive to transfer gossip, it spurs me. However I know that Empoli comes first. I have to thank our sporting director Accardi that was brave enough to sign me from a Serie C side and give me this opportunity. If nobody is brave enough to take a punt on you, you will remain unnoticed", concluded Di Lorenzo.
