Genoa keen on signing Napoli defender
With Napoli undergoing major changes to their playing staff after the arrival of new coach Rafael Benitez it is believed that centre-back Alessandro Gamberini is considering his future at the San Paolo and has been the subject of an enquiry from Genoa.
As defensive reinforcements arrive and Benitez likely to proceed with his preferred 4-2-3-1 formation rather than the three man defence employed by predecessor Walter Mazzarri opportunities are expected to be limited for the 31-year-old.
Whilst Sky Sports Italia report interest from the Grifone, Napoli are yet to receive a firm offer from the Rossoblu as the former Fiorentina defender awaits assurances over his playing time in Naples next term.
After moving to Naples in July 2012, the Italian international has made 25 Serie A appearances for the Partenopei while scoring once, ironically netting in their 4-2 victory against Genoa last November.
