According to reports, Giovanni Di Lorenzo, the captain of Napoli, has reached a complete understanding with Juventus as he seeks a transfer this upcoming summer. The 30-year-old Italian right-back swiftly indicated towards the end of the season that he felt his time with the club had reached its conclusion, citing dissatisfaction with President Aurelio De Laurentiis’s conduct. This prompted his agent, Mario Giuffredi, to publicly declare his client’s intentions.

Juventus director Cristiano Giuntoli promptly expressed interest in acquiring Di Lorenzo, eager to bring the seasoned defender to Turin following their previous collaboration in Naples. Some sources have suggested the possibility of a swap deal involving Federico Chiesa.

According to Michele Criscitiello, CEO of SportItalia, Di Lorenzo has already committed to joining Juventus this summer and has agreed to personal terms with the club, awaiting an agreement to be reached with Napoli.

New Napoli coach Antonio Conte reached out to the 30-year-old in an attempt to persuade him to remain at the club, but Di Lorenzo reportedly informed him that his decision was final and that he had informed the club accordingly.
