Nehuen Perez leaves Napoli due to Ostegaard. The process that seemed like it should be quickly closed has suddenly stopped, given that the blue club has changed its mind about the Norwegian's future. The centre-back was one of the best players in the match against Lazio at the Stadio Olimpico on Sunday and could stay, as the Napoli club no longer intend to sell him for any price this transfer window. For roster reasons, it was not possible for the Argentine to arrive from Udinese without saying goodbye to the former Genoa player and everything suggests, even if in the transfer market never say never, that in the end everything will remain as it is.
Lovato in Turin.
The alternative chosen by Juventus to replace Nehuen Perez was, as is known, Matteo Lovato, who at this point falls off the radar of the Friulians, but his future will not be in Salernitana, since Torino, also thanks to Bongiorno's stoppage in which he will have to stay in the pits for a month, is ready to make the decision for him. Negotiations have been closed, and barring any surprises, the former Atalanta player, born in 2000, is expected to arrive in the city within the next few hours for ritual medical visits.
Lovato will meet Juric again in Piedmont and this was a crucial aspect of his selection because with the Croatian coach he was able to appear and make himself known in the Italian League in Verona, and the coach specifically asked the centre-back to be able to work with him again. On Sunday, it looked like Udinese had won the title, but their will made the difference. Lovato has played 12 league games so far in the 2023-2024 season.
However, the defender has already said goodbye to Torino David Zima. The player born in 2000 ended up in Hamburg's goal, but he did not convince Urbano Cairo and negotiations to bring him to Germany were halted. So the centre-back will return to the Czech Republic, the country where he was born Slavia Prague, the club where he already played in 2020-2021. This season he participated in two matches, one in the Italian League and one in the Italian Cup against Frosinone, in which he also scored.
