Napoli president De Laurentiis: We don't need Belotti

Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis has dismissed talk of a move for Torino striker Andrea Belotti.

Belotti is being linked with the Azzurri this week.

But De Laurentiis said: “Absolutely false. I don't adore Belotti, no offence, but we have a battery of strikers who are overflowing. I always said let's allow the Coach to see their qualities before buying anyone else. There are simply too many.

“The fans want us to constantly buy players, but De Laurentiis has great respect for his collaborators and that includes the Coach. De Laurentiis at the age of 69 doesn't need to perform a coup de theatre or prove anything to anyone."

Roberto Inglese was loaned out to Parma today, but ADL assures that doesn't mean a new forward will arrive in his place.

“Why sign someone to stop the others playing? We've got Simone Verdi, Dries Mertens, Arkadiusz Milik, Jose Callejon, Lorenzo Insigne."
