Right-back Giovanni Di Lorenzo plans to change clubs this summer and is close to leaving Napoli, according to insider Nicolo Schira.

At the end of the current season, the Italian surprised Napoli's management with his desire to leave the team after five years. Although the "Partenopei" did not expect this turn of events, they are considering the possibility of the 30-year-old player leaving four years before his current contract expires. Italian media report that Di Lorenzo has already agreed on personal terms with Juventus.

However, the potential transfer fee could be an obstacle. "The Old Lady" planned to allocate around 15 million euros for his transfer, but Napoli stated that they would not enter negotiations unless the offer falls within the range of 20 to 25 million euros.

Football Italia reported that the Turin club has already prepared a contract for Di Lorenzo until 2028, with an option to extend for another season. Last season, the full-back played 49 matches, scored two goals, and provided two assists.
