Erwin Hoffer- Eintracht Frankfurt- 30 games- 09 goals
Cristian Chavez- San Lorenzo- 09 games- 01 goal
Some good experience for some of the youngsters but most will never been seen in Napoli shirt in serie A. The loaning out of Luigi Vitale to me was a waste of time, he didnt get one game at Bologna and we could have used him on the left wing at times this season. Cigarini will stay at Atalanta, maybe in a swap deal or they will buy him outright same will happen with Santacroce, Parma want to keep him. Rinuado and Santana will be sold to whoever wants them, maybe a newly promoted team. Insigne’s future is up in the air at the moment, either he will return to be used from the bench or he will go back out on loan to a Serie A club. Ciano will go back out on loan again, so too will Dumitru. Maiello should come back and fight for a place in the team as the fourth or fifth central midfielder. the others from Lega pro will either go back out on loan or be sold and taken off the books. The likes of Sepe, Izzo, Donnarumma and De Vena need more game time and wont get it at Napoli next season so another year on loan looks likely. Erwin Hoffer will probably be bought by Eintracht and Chavez might remain in Argentina. Out of all the returniong loanees i can see only Vitale and Maiello being added to next season’s squad.
GK- De Sanctis-Rosati- Colombo
RWB Maggio- Zuniga
With Grava, Colombo and Luccarelli out of contract, expect only Colombo to resign for another year as third choice back up. De Sanctis is stalling on resigning his contract but to be honest with his displays this year Napoli should begin the search for a new keeper. In defence a big change is needed but only Fideleff will be sent out on loan and Grava will retire so we will still have 5 centre backs and with at least 2 more higher quality defenders rumoured to be signed we will have to let someone go. 7-8 centre backs is too many.
A left wing back maybe two will have to been signed as there is a serious lack of quality and cover for a team that focuses on wing play. Midfield Donadel should be let go unless he can prove his fitness for next season. Up front Luccarelli will go back to Parma and probably reitre, Lavezzi could be on his way and Vargas could go out on loan. Pandev is wanted again for next season by Mazzarri.
So with De La speaking out about wanting a squad of 30 players with a number of youngsters fighting for places expect to see Napoli make a number of signings to fill out what was for most of this season a threadbare squad. Feel free to discuss your thoughts on the squad as the silly season of transfer rumours begins.
