Official: Napoli sign Spinazzola, retain Di Lorenzo

Napoli have announced the signing of Leonardo Spinazzola, while confirming that Giovanni Di Lorenzo will remain their captain.

Spinazzola joins the Naples club as a free agent. The former Roma defender has signed a two-year contract, as confirmed by an official statement on Wednesday.

On the rumours of Di Lorenzo’s future, Napoli in a separate X post clarified that the captain will stay with the club “for many years.”

“Napoli read on certain media that they’d still need to clear the air with Di Lorenzo,” the statement read.

“Evidently, such media are misinformed because the positive ‘clarification’ between the club and the captain already happened a few weeks ago.

“It is clear, therefore, that Di Lorenzo will continue being the Napoli captain for many years,” it added.
