Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis admits he needs to sell.
De Laurentiis says he'd like to buy, but needs to part with some players first.
He said, “I often hear people say that Napoli need a top player, as if the ones we already have don't fit the bill: your Kalidou Koulibaly, your Insigne, your Allan, for whom we turned down an offer of €70m, but also your Jose Callejon, Dries Mertens, Piotr Zielinski and Fabian Ruiz, who was a sensational purchase that few pay attention to.
“I could cite all of them, such as Alex Meret for example, but that would just take up time. I could maybe add those we purchased over the years: Pocho Lavezzi, Fabio Quagliarella, Edinson Cavani, Gonzalo Higuain, Pepe Reina… You want more?
“The most pressing need right now, I'd say the priority, is to sell. We have many players in the squad and it's right to reduce the group, but we are also active and attentive on the market."
