Agent admits Napoli could try again for Lazio striker Ciro Immobile

The agent of Lazio striker Ciro Immobile admits Napoli are keen.

But Alessandro Moggi says Immobile is happy where he is.

"There's no doubt that [Cristiano] Giuntoli is a real admirer of Immobile, so much so that he wanted to bring him to Naples just before Ciro went to Lazio," Moggi told Radio Kiss Kiss.

“Giuntoli was and remains an admirer of Immobile, but it seems difficult not to be one, given what Immobile has done in the last five years.

“Today, however, beyond what may be the interests of Napoli and other clubs, for a player as consistent over the years as Immobile, the market may take a knockback because of the Coronavirus emergency.

“He has a contract until 2023. If there's someone who is genuinely interested in him, they'll have to knock on Lazio's door, in addition to that of the player.

“It's too early to talk about interest in him now but, like there's already been from Inter, Milan and China a year ago, it's normal. We'll see further down the line."
