Giovanni Di Lorenzo may be in for a busy summer as his relationship with Napoli deteriorates, and Milan are waiting in the wings in case he becomes available. The prospect would gather traction, especially if the Rossoneri hired Antonio Conte, TeleLombardia reports.

The captain is contracted with the Azzurri until 2028. He is the third highest-paid player on the squad, earning €3 million. Only Victor Osimhen (€10 million), Stanislav Lobotka, and Piotr Zielinski (€3.5 million) make more. He has made 215 appearances since 2019.

Milan and other prospective bidders would have to pay €25/30 million to sign Di Lorenzo. The Partenopei perceive no particular concerns on this front.

His agent, Mario Giuffredi, spoke out in a recent interview with Radio CRC (via OneFootball).

“Criticizing is normal, but people have a short memory. In the last few years, I don’t recall him ever flunking a game. He has been one of the best fullbacks in the world. His season might not be superb, but it’s not insufficient either. The campaign has been subpar for the whole team. The situation doesn’t hinge on a single player.”

“We’ll take stock in June and make our evaluations keeping this in mind. It’s only fair for us to acknowledge the current state of things and draw a conclusion.”
