Simone Verdi confirms Napoli switch

Bologna star Simone Verdi has moved to confirm that he will be joining Napoli in the summer transfer window.

The highly rated forward had initially rejected a move to Stadio San Paolo in January, but he has now decided to accept the offer from Naples.

Verdi basically confirmed the switch after playing alongside Napoli stars Lorenzo Insigne and Jorginho in an international friendly between Italy and the Netherlands.

“I have always been consistent, as I said in January that I wanted to end my journey and season with Bologna,” Verdi told Rai Sport.

“It had nothing to do with Napoli, nor did Carlo Ancelotti have anything to do with me saying yes in this transfer session.

“I had a brief chat with Ancelotti, but it was a formal conversation. I already worked with Sarri at Empoli, so I knew him well already.

“I simply wanted to end the season with Bologna and show my gratitude for their support.”

Simone Verdi enjoyed a very successful campaign with Felsinei last term, producing 10 goals and as many assists in 34 Serie A appearances.
