After 5 seasons, Allan is leaving Napoli. The Brazilian midfielder will be leaving the squad and joining Everton. Now, the azzurri squad will need to consider replacement options, in effort to ensure Gattuso has a strong midfield heading into next season.
The chosen replacement will be dictated by the formation Gattuso will want to use, and in the case he uses a 4-2-3-1, this player might not end up being a true central midfielder. But, the profile of Jordan Veretout remains among the list of favorites, but the path forward is to be determined.
Under is an option with an exchange for Milik, but there is no agreement as Napoli is asking for 20 million euro and Roma is firm at 10 million.
Dominik Szoboszlai was the favorite for the midfield, but he announced that he wanted to stay another year at Salzburg. Napoli will attempt to restart contacts if they choose to play a 4-3-3. If the decision is to utilize a 4-2-3-1 and take a more offensive player, Boga is an option, but Atalanta is also pushing for the player.
