Malcuit signed for Napoli yesterday in a deal worth €11m.
"I offered him to Napoli months ago, but (Cristiano) Giuntoli was negotiating for bigger names," agent Bruno Satin told Radio Crc.
“Sabaly then faded and Napoli quickly closed the deal for Malcuit. We're talking about an attacking full-back.
“He finds it relatively easy to beat his man and whip in a good cross. He'll need to adapt to Italian football, becoming more rigorous defensively, but with a teacher like Ancelotti it won't be a problem.
“Lille had a difficult season last year, but he also had a lot of injuries. He could've been a candidate for France's World Cup squad without them.
“He can also play on the left. He played there in the third tier. We're talking about a versatile player, with a huge desire to play at this level."
