Napoli’s Piotr Zielinski wants to stay in the team, but the situation is not going well.
Napoli recorded a 1-0 victory over Juventus in the 31st round of Italian Serie A in the 2022-23 season held at the Allianz Stadium in Turin, Italy on the 24th at 3:45 am (Korean time). With this, Napoli won after 4 official matches and the gap with ‘2nd place’ Lazio widened to 17 points.
This brought Napoli one step closer to winning the league. With this victory, Napoli maintained its lead in the league with 78 points, and the difference between Lazio in second place and Lazio was 17 points and 19 points in third place Juventus. With only 7 league games left, Napoli will win the league title for the first time in 33 years if they win 2 more league games in the future.
Although Napoli is having a ‘best ever’ season, there were many worries and concerns before the start of the season. Team legends Dries Mertens, Lorenzo Insigne, Fabian Ruiz and David Ospina have all left the team ahead of the season. Each has been the top scorer, iconic captain, most talented playmaker and number one goalkeeper in team history. In addition, Kalidou Koulibaly, the leader of the defense, also moved to Chelsea.
However, they succeeded in efficient recruitment such as Hvica Kvaratsuhelia and Kim Min-jae, and are rather performing better than last season. With just two wins from their remaining matches, they will reach the league title for the first time since the era of Diego Maradona in 1989-90.스포츠토토
In Napoli, there are some standout players such as Victor Osimen, Kvarachhelia, and Kim Min-jae, but there are players who have quietly played their role. That’s Piotr Zielinski. Zielinski, who has been playing for Napoli since 2016, is a resource with mobility, build-up and scoring ability in midfield. He is also active as the main midfielder this season and has recorded 3 goals and 7 assists in 30 league games.
Zielinski wants to stay at Napoli next season. But the problem is his high level. Italian media ‘Arena Napoli’ said, “He has a contract with Napoli until 2024, but he is receiving a high share price of 3.5 million euros (about 5.1 billion won). It is almost impossible to renew the contract.”
But Zielinski is willing to negotiate. According to ‘Arena Napoli’, now Zielinski is willing to cut his weekly wage, so he is determined to stay in Naples. Meanwhile, according to reporter Gianluca Di Marzio, an expert on the Italian transfer market, Zielinski is said to be interested in England’s wealthy club Newcastle United. This is why interest is gathering for Zielinski’s next destination.
