Napoli coach Ancelotti welcomes Elmas: But Verdi can go

Napoli coach Carlo Ancelotti was satisfied with their 3-3 draw against Cremonese.

Eljif Elmas made his Napoli debut as a substitute having just arrived from Fenerbahce.

Ancelotti said, “He can give quality to the midfield and is very happy to be here. I'm pleased too, as he is a modern midfielder who can bring further quality to an area that is already at a high level."

Simone Verdi was on target, but is wanted by Torino and Sampdoria.

“Verdi expressed the desire to play more regularly, so he is evaluating things with the club," added the coach.
