Empoli president Corsi: Napoli, De Rossi big fans of ex-Arsenal kid Bennacer

Former Arsenal prospect Ismael Bennacer is attracting big club interest at Empoli.

Bennacer has shone for Empoli this season.

And president Fabrizio Corsi says: “He's a good player, assessments are made over time.

“He's a lad born in 1997 and seems already developed, despite having huge potential. He's on a great path of growth, so we must let him work in peace.

“We're also a healthy club, so we're not obliged to sell. The Azzurri [Napoli] are interested, but it remains to be seen with them.

“He could also end up at Roma, where De Rossi has already told us how much he rates the lad.

“Daniele asked my staff, 'where did you find a strong lad like him?' Then there's also Inter, who have many of my former staff."
