Hirving Lozano has been advised to leave Napoli in the summer but he’s personally in no rush to do so. His father suggested he would stay and that his role would grow with Lorenzo Insigne’s departure. The Mexico winger ends the season well after recovering.
Jesus Lozano awarded CalcioNapoli24: “We spoke last week; Unfortunately, it’s almost mathematically impossible for them to win the Scudetto now. That’s football. Next year they will try again. Luciano Spalletti leans more on him and he’s very comfortable with him. I hope they can continue together.”
“His favorite cross is the left, so he can cut back and shoot. Insigne’s exit will allow him to play there. He’s great in Naples and I think he wants to stay. He is happy with the city as a whole, and so is his family.”
Lozano was criticized earlier this season when he suggested Napoli are not a club and he aspires to join one. His father addressed the controversy: “Everyone has their dreams but his focus now is on doing well with the Azzurri.”
Despite the words of his relative, the Partenopei will consider offers for the striker roughly in line with what they spent on him in 2019, around €40m, La Gazzetta dello Sport informed. Corresponding Heaven‘s Luca Marchetti, Lozano is not among the players deemed untouchable by Napoli. The list only includes Giovanni Di Lorenzo, Amir Rrahmani, Stanislav Lobotka and Matteo Politano.
