Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis says he is not looking for a striker, despite Ezequiel Lavezzi’s imminent move to Paris Saint-Germain.
Napoli are set to lose the Argentina international to the Ligue 1 runners-up, but De Laurentiis has reiterated his desire to bolster other areas in the squad first.
“We must strengthen the defence and midfield. I do not think we need to take a striker as we already have (Eduardo) Vargas, (Lorenzo) Insigne, (Edinson) Cavani and (Goran) Pandev,” he told Radio Marte.
“We will not create chaos within the squad. After all, Lavezzi and (Marek) Hamsik have grown so much because we had the patience to make them grow.
“You cannot think only about the coming season, but we must look to the future because (UEFA president Michel) Platini has determined that you must have your accounts in order. Arab (owners) would not solve the problems of our football.”
Napoli finished the season in fifth place in Serie A.
