Perisic agent confirms Napoli interest

The agent of Wolfsburg striker Ivan Perisic has confirmed interest from Napoli.

Perisic yesterday commented to Italian media 'slowly, slowly', when asked about the rumours.

"That 'slowly, slowly' said after Italy-Croatia does not mean that we are closing with Napoli," Franco Iovino told Radio Crc.

"But, when an important team like Napoli is interested, the player is clearly flattered. There has been some contact with [FIFA agent] Tonci Martic, but nothing more. In August we spoke about it, but to sign Perisic is not easy.

"He can play many roles, is strong-minded, physically he is well placed and can find the goal with ease.

"I do not speak of numbers, but Wolfsburg do not need the money and therefore to sell.

"Perisic would accept Napoli, he loves Italy and the club is one of the biggest in Italy."
