Verona president Setti admits Napoli wanted Kumbulla

Hellas Verona president Maurizio Setti admits Marash Kumbulla was close to joining Napoli in January.

The defender is now expected to be sold over the summer.

Setti said, “In January there already was very strong interest from Napoli, but there wasn't much time to get the deal done and the player preferred to take some time to reflect.

"That is the only reason why he didn't agree the transfer to Napoli.

“Now there are several clubs interested in him. He's a talented lad who is destined for a career at a top club."
