De Laurentiis wants Napoli to focus on young signings

Napoli president Aurelio de Laurentiis wants to focus on young talent this summer.

De Laurentiis says they're now planning for the transfer market.

"With Rafa Benitez and Riccardo Bigon we are considering the situation. The problem is that I prefer focusing on youngsters, as more experienced players can also be a little spoilt. They can do well the first year, but nothing says they'll keep that up in the second or third.

"I prefer to seek 20-year-old talents and Benitez is getting used to this approach, because I am not asking him for everything straight away. I want a team that becomes strong over time."
