Napoli, here are the potential Milik replacements
29 November at 17:45Napoli's Milik went down with a serious injury as Napoli are looking to add another front-man to their roster in January to replace him (even if he may also be back in early 2017). Genoa's Leonardo Pavoletti is one player that Napoli have been following but he has been very inconsistant this season because of nagging injuries. To add to this, Pavoletti has said numerous times that he is happy at Genoa and that he is currently only focusing on the present.
In the mean time, Napoli have been looking elsewhere as their hunt for a striker continues. According to Sky Sport, De Laurentiis' club have targeted three new players: Sassuolo's Gregoire Defrel, West Ham's Simone Zaza and Sampdoria's Luis Muriel. It now seems like Napoli's January reinforcement will likely be one of these three players.
This would be good news for Genoa fans who love Pavoletti. The Italian striker is currently injured because of a knee strain and won't be fit before 2017.
