Napoli’s attacking full-back Giovanni Di Lorenzo will reportedly be under the microscope of Chelsea and Manchester United when he bids to help Italy beat England in Sunday night’s Euro 2020 final.
The ex-Empoli star, 27, has been one of the Azzurri’s top performers en route to Wembley.
And Di Lorenzo will almost certainly line up for Italy against England at Wembley Stadium on Sunday in what would be his fifth start of the tournament.
But it is his club career that now looks to be up in the air following rumours linking him with a move to Man Utd before the start of next season.
Spanish outlet Defensa Central reports that Di Lorenzo is on Chelsea’s radar this summer.
The Blues missed out on Inter Milan wing-back Achraf Hakimi ahead of his move to Paris Saint-Germain.
According to Il Napolista, the Red Devils have been alerted to the 27-year-old after he revealed during the Euros that he likes the Premier League.
The move for Di Lorenzo is said to be Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s way of bringing in some competition for Aaron Wan-Bissaka at right-back.
The 27-year-old has four years left on his contract at the San Paolo but the fullback’s representative Mario Giuffredi claimed before Euro 2020 the defender has ambitions of playing at a higher level:
“Euro 2020 is an important showcase where big clubs like Chelsea, Real Madrid, Atletico, PSG and others can take an interest in these players.
If Di Lorenzo continues like this and a request should arrive, we must then evaluate together with Napoli. He still has a four-year contract and therefore it will not depend on us but will depend on them.”
